A loan of $4,075 helped a member to buy fabric, needles, glue, scissors, sewing accessories, and other items.

Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

Higinia started the current group. She invited and organized her friends to be a part of the Committee for Enterprising Women of the Fundación. This way they are able to help each other by working together.

Higinia has been separated for several years. She has six children; all of them are adults. She says that she is a seamstress. Thanks to this work she has been able to help her family and raise her children. She says that it is going very well for her due to the fact that she does very good work. This helps her to have more customers.

She is requesting the loan to buy work supplies (fabric, needles, glue, scissors, sewing accessories, and other items). Her goal is to buy two sewing machines. That way her income would increase, and it would also help other people in the neighborhood by giving them work.

In this group: Rosa Etelvina, Hignia, Dolores, Susana, Margarita, Elvira, Isabel, Celia, Raimunda, Patricia, Raquel, Alberta, Ortencia, Daisy, Ermelinda, Beatriz*, Carmen*
