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


Grupo Hermanas Chuinahualate Group's story

Catarina is a 22-year-old woman with a beautiful family. She lives with them in a community of the village of Chuinahualate. She is a very hardworking, persevering and generous person. In order to help her husband with the household expenses, she buys and sells traditional clothing from her region. She has been doing this activity for close to 12 years, and her business is located on one of the main streets of her community.

To fortify her business and improve her income, Catarina is asking for a loan to invest in buying and selling more traditional clothing products to meet the demand of her customers.
