Corrales Group's story

In the city of Carapegua a group or women of modest means came together to form their own committee and so be able to join the Comite de Mujeres Emprededoras [Entrepreneurial Women's Committee]. These women are active and hardworking and all make a living making crafts. They came together to be able to support their businesses through loans and so improve their families' income and quality of life. They need this loan to be able to invest in their respective businesses and so be able to achieve the sustained growth that will help them grow as a group and individually. One of the members is Isabel, who like her partners, works making crafts. This is a very common activity in the area. She makes wool blankets, ponchos and scarves amongst others for the winter. She's very happy because demand is strong and she is requesting the loan to buy raw material such as thread, fabric and dyes.
