A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy material for making jackets.

Flor De Pachawacan Group's story

Irma T. A. is 26 years old. She didn't have the opportunity to attend school. She has four children and three of them are in school.

Irma does house work and also knits. She has been doing this for eight years. She started out making small knitted items and now she knits jackets. She has the support of her husband who is a salesman. Irma decided to organize this group in order to request a loan which she could invest in her business as working capital, buying raw materials: thread and yarn. These are very important materials for making her jackets.

The other members of this group work in a variety of businesses including: selling sewing supplies, raising animals, selling flowers and making candles. They are all hoping to improve and grow their businesses.

In this group: Margarita , Maria , Irma , Marcelina , Teodora , Santos , Reyna , Felipa , Carmen , Alejandria
