A loan of $2,275 helped a member to invest in the purchase of fabric to make polo shirts.


Ampliacion Villa El Polvorin Group's story

Mrs. Isidora C. is 48 years old, lives with her husband and has 3 children. More than 2 years ago she opened a clothes-making store together with her husband. They make men's polo shirts and take them to different departments of Peru to sell. At the beginning, they worked for different workshops, but thanks to their hard work and sacrifice they were able to buy sewing machines, overlockers and other items to later be able to have their own workshop like they had always dreamed. With the loan they will continue investing in fabrics to keep making t-shirts.

In this group: Isidora, Rosario, Olinda Justina, Wilson Basilio, Miriam Viviana, Guillermo, Sabino
