A loan helped a member to buy fabric in bulk to use for dressmaking.

Manantial Group's story

The group Manantial are based in the city of Luque. They are a committee made up of enterprising women who are committed to the group, themselves and their families. They are selfless and know the requirements and coexistence which comes from being a part of a women's committee. They are also part of the Poverty Stoplight programme, where everyone is fighting for a better quality of life.
Fidelina is a member of the committee. She is a dressmaker. She adds that she has a modest workshop in which she works every day, starting early in the morning. This enables her to support her household and her family. She is an enterprising and selfless person who fights to give her loved ones a better quality of life, so that they do not want for any of the things that she herself had to go without.
She is asking for this loan to buy fabric in bulk, to continue with her dressmaking business.
