A loan helped a member to purchase fabric, thread, glue, and other products.


Virgen De Fatima Group's story

This committee is in their 11the cycle. Each member seeks a way to be able to offer their family a better standard of living, and they strive to succeed so that their families do not go through needs like the ones they did.

Among the members who stands out is Araceli, who makes her living as a seamstress. She mentions that she has a modest workshop, where she works every day from early in the morning because she has many orders. However, she says that due to the Covod-19 pandemic, her work was affected as she could not work normally, and this also affected her income.

She is requesting this loan to purchase fabric, thread, glue, and other products to be able to continue with her work, and in this way, be able to invest in her business.
