A loan helped a member to buy and sell typical clothing of her region.


Grupo Las Prestigiosas De Chilopizab Group's story

Manuela is a woman with high aspirations in life. She is 36 years old and married, with a lovely family of six children with whom she lives in a community in the village of Chilopizab.

To generate her own income and get her family ahead, she buys and sells typical clothing. She has been doing this for eight years, selling on the main streets of her community.

With the goal of continuing to prosper with her business, Manuela is seeking a loan which she will invest in the purchase of more clothing such as huipils, sashes, and skirts.
