A loan of $1,875 helped a member to buy plastic strips.

Primavera Group's story

Santos is married. She’s 46 years old and never had the opportunity to go to school. She has six children three of which are in school. She is a housewife but also a craftswoman. She makes plastic baskets. She started the business thanks to a bit of capital she had and, to date, has five years experience. She has support from her husband, who is a merchant.

She decided to organize a group to request a loan that she can use to buy plastic strips which is the raw material used to make the baskets because she’d like to see her business be larger and better in the future. The other group members are in commerce, farming and crafts.

In this group: Sandra Amalia, Gloria, Maria, Santos, Basilia, Dominga, Esperanza, Julia, Teresa, Francisca, Dominga Cecilia, Maria
