Primas De Betania Group's story

This group is called “Las Primas de Betania” and is located in Quintana Roo, Mexico. Francisca P. C. is a member of this group. Francisca embroiders and makes 'huipiles' which are traditional tunics or blouses from the Maya region of Quintana Roo. She is requesting this loan to invest in buying threads and fabrics which she will use to grow her business. She feels proud and happy because, thanks to this loan, she will manage to improve her business and make a large variety of outfits such as suits, increasing her sales and thereby her profits. She will also be able to conserve the beauty of her culture. This experience allows her to create a culture of saving and she plans to better herself and improve her family's quality of life. Francisca is a very hard-working person who has 7 children, most of whom are already married. Through effort and hard work, she has managed to get her children ahead in life and she will continue to work, as she has done up until now, in order to improve her business and provide for her family's well-being.
