Espiritu Santo Group's story

In order to form this group, Pablina Mallorquín, who lives in the 7th kilometer of the Murucuyá neighborhood of C.D.E, contacted her friends and neighbors to form the group in her neighborhood. The group is called “Espíritu Santo” (Holy Spirit). It is in its 8th cycle, and is made up of 19 members. This group is known it the neighborhood as being united and very responsible. They have savings that they use for activities such as birthday celebrations for the members, drawings, and different activities.

Cristina is one of the members. She is an artisan and very active. She’s been doing this for several years and makes a variety of craft items, such as embroidered slippers, thermos covers, and other things. Her products are in high demand because of their quality and she also exports to France. She is very proud of that fact.

She is asking for this loan to buy supplies such as fabric, thread, colored inks, glues, and other things.
