Artesanas Beni Loma Group's story

In the Beni Loma neighborhood of the city of Carapegua, 15 miles from the central offices of Carapegua, some low-income women found out about the Comité de Mujeres Emprendoras program, and decided to meet to receive information about this program. They were looking for a little support in the form of loans, to develop a source of income and in this way improve their quality of life.

They have already obtained loans, and thanks to this program they are able to invest in the purchase of thread and cloth and thus ensure systematic growth.

One of the members is Felicia, who has a clothing workshop. Her business is in a good location, and her customers are very satisfied with the products that are made in her workshop. Over the years that she has dedicated herself to this business she has acquired a lot of experience, and she is very satisfied with this activity. She makes garments according to the season and sells them through orders. She wants to increase her income by decreasing the cost of her supplies by buying at wholesale the thread, fabric and appliques she uses to make clothing.

In this group: Blanca, Felicia, Marciana, Saturnina, Pablina, Aquilina, Luidina, Dominga, Lilian, Castorina, María Emilce, Francisca, Estelvina, Ignacia, Rosalba
