A loan helped a member to buy weaving machines.


13 De Junio Rb Group's story

Cecilia is the eldest of five siblings whom she helps financially. She works selling "aguayos" [multi-colored wool cloths]. She makes some by hand and buys others wholesale. She began to work selling clothing, where she got the idea to have a sales space because her employer was bad. She got married. She bought a little house and all her family lives with her.

She will invest the loan she is taking in the purchase of weaving machines to make sweaters and clothing, thereby producing much more and obtaining greater profits. Her dream is that her children will be professionals and have a better future than hers.

The member in the photo is Cecilia. It was only possible to take her photo; due to the bio-security measures for the worldwide pandemic, it was not possible to gather all the members who live in distant provinces.
