A loan of $3,425 helped a member to set up a small workshop in her home and to buy sewing supplies.

Renacer Group's story

Vilma set up this committee. She invited friends from her neighborhood to join the 'Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras' (Commitee of Entrepreneurial Women) program and organized the group as they all share the same dream of getting their families ahead in life. They all also want to be able to feel of use to society and their families.

Vilma has a sewing business. She has been married to Francisco, who works as a driver on a transport route, for 20 years. They have three children who are all studying: one is in elementary school, one is in high school and one is at university. Vilma has been running a sewing business in her neighborhood for a long time. As a result, she has a large customer base. Her dream is to be able to open a sewing workshop in her home and equip it with everything she needs to continue to carry out her work.

Vilma is requesting this loan to set up a small workshop in her home which she will equip with the supplies that she needs. She and her fellow committee members have all their hopes placed in this loan.
