Paz Y Progreso Group's story

Fani is a member of the 'Paz y Progreso' (Peace and Progress) group which is maD. up of 12 friends who decided to give the group this name because of the wishes that they have for each other. Fani makes handicrafts and she will use her loan to buy paints, 'microporoso' (a type of foam) and other items for finishing off her crafts. She hopes to expand her business and get together a workforce so that she can make handicrafts in larger quantities. She hopes, in this way, to be able to continue supporting her daughter Gaby in her studies and hopes that her group keeps being supported by their training sessions.

Accompanying the other members is Astuvilca (in the flowery blouse) who is the group's founder.

In this group: Fani Ines, Fausta Beatriz, Judid Magaly, Ines Eulogia, Guadalupe, Margarita Yolanda, Miguel, Katia Mercedes, Flora Sofia, Esperanza Juvencia, Maria Esther, Maria Concepcion
