A loan of $875 helped a member purchase merchandise.

Union Y Vida Group's story

The group “Union y Vida” (Union and Life) consists of three members who are originally from Sumpango. Most of these women engage in embroidery and weaving. Olga A. is the group representative and the mother of six children. She sells traditional clothing in the city and travels to another city every Friday to buy merchandise. The other members make embroidered blouses as well as woven sashes.

Olga needs to expand her business as a result of great demand, which is why she is requesting another loan. These women have had several loans with FAPE and repaid them successfully. The loan they requested will be used to buy clothing to expand Olga’s business as well as acquire more yarn for producing embroidered and woven clothing. They dream of having a store where customers can find them and they can grow their businesses.
