Primavera Group's story

The committee called “Primavera” (Spring) was started two years ago with the effort and support of a group of active women who work together to keep their committee going. This committee has become known locally as a group of hardworking women. It should be mentioned that this group always rises above any difficulties encountered by its members. They all work with great commitment to complete their weekly payments and desire to continue working together.


One of the members is Sra. Luciana S., who engages in sewing and embroidery. She owns embroidery machines that she uses to produce the designs selected by each of her customers. Luciana has many customers and her sewing workshop has become a very busy place. She is pleased with her business and looks forward to expanding her workshop by acquiring more machines and staff.


The loan she is requesting will be invested in her business. Luciana will acquire materials that she utilizes on a daily basis such as thread, special needles in different sizes, various fabrics, and other supplies.

In this group: Luciana, Julia, Ilse, Dayana, Lilian, Rosa, Maria, Osbalda, Victorina, Lucia, Irma, Elizabeth, Luisa, Jorgelina, Octavia*
