A loan helped a member to buy thread, fabrics and other supplies for her crafts business.

Cañadita Group's story

The members of the Canadita community bank have a third round of funding. The members, all women, are friends and neighbors and each helps all the others.

Our featured member, Isabel, is a modest, hard-working woman. She operates a crafts business, making lace cloth, and tells us that her small business has helped her family get ahead and given them a better quality of life.

Isabel is applying for a loan that she will use to buy thread, fabrics and the other supplies she needs to carry on her lace-making business.
