Once she found out about the program, she succeeded in getting 16 women together and they are happily working as a group on their second loan cycle in the program. All are in businesses to earn money. They support each other to achieve the goals that they all have in common.

One of the members is Limpia. She has been a seamstress for some time now. She says that she has many customers since she is very friendly and does very good work. One of her goals is to have a bigger workshop where she can do all types of sewing. She says that what she does is for the good of her family since she wants to give them a better standard of living.
