A loan of $3,775 helped a member to make apparel and embroider fabric.


El Futuro Del Peru Group's story

Señora Asteria is a member of the community bank '“El Futuro de Perú” ("The Future of Peru"). She is 46 years old and married with 3 young children. The member works in handicrafts, doing Fustanes Embroidery (traditional hand-woven fabrics). She rises in the early hours of the morning so you can embroider the fabrics, as it takes a lot of dedication, concentration, creativity and art. She makes apparel for the months of the Patron Festivals, such as Santiago (a festival held in the area). The embroidered fabrics are sold in the months of June, July and August as demand is high.

The member is requesting the loan to buy raw materials like wool, yarns and fabric. Her future objective is to buy an industrial sewing machine. The partner is located in the center of the group wearing a white sweater and lilac, behind the young man Milber.

In this group: Arteria , Victoria , Julia , Katherine , Anais Xiomara , Mirtha , Jhobana Gloria , Aurea Luisa , Ketty , Marina, Milber Raul
