A loan helped a member to buy and sell traditional clothing.


Grupo Solidario Chuicomo Sector Inglesia Group's story

Maria is a woman with big aspirations in life.

She is 28 years old. She is very happy because, thanks to the support from the loan, she made the investment in her business, which has gone very well for her, fortunately.

For the Christmas season she wants to meet all of her customers' demand.

She is seeking a loan that she will invest in the purchase of a variety of traditional clothes such as güipiles [tunics or blouses], fajas [woven belts or sashes], and cortes [traditional handwoven skirts].

Her greatest hope in life is to offer her family better living conditions.
