A loan of $1,200 helped a member invest in business.


Mujeres Las Dalias Group's story

This group is comprised of Faustina Diaz; the group leader; Teresa Parzan, and Tomasa Borar. The three of them are businesswomen.

Teresa Parzan sells firewood. She also makes and sells "comales" (clay dishes for making tortillas).

Tomasa Borrar makes and sells typical clothing of San Juan Sacatepequez.

Faustina sells typical clothes, all types of blouses, traditional Mayan skirts, aprons, and ponchos. She sells in her house, and she also sells away from home. She now wants to stock her business a little more. That is why she is requesting this new loan. She tells us that she wants to buy clothes a little softer, which are being asked for more. That way she will increase her sales and satisfy all of her customers.

In this group: María Teresa, María Faustina, Tomasa
