A loan of $675 helped a member to buy raw materials to make weavings.

Duo La Providencia Group's story


This group is made up of two sisters. Irma learned to weave güipil when she was little, as well as how to raise animals. When she married she continued in the trade and little by little was able to support her 3 children. She is asking for this loan to buy the raw materials to make weavings. Then there is Blanca, who also has woven güipil for 20 years. She now has a small store located in her house where she has sold items of daily consumption for 3 years. This has helped her a lot because she can attend to her business as well as her children and husband and be satisfied with what she is contributing to her family.

Both of them, as mothers and wives, want the best for their families and that is what has motivated them to keep working everyday for a prosperous future for their small children whom they see grow day to day.

In this group: Blanca Gricelda, Irma Yolanda
