A loan of $800 helped a member to buy the raw materials for textile production.


Duo Providencia Group's story

La Provincia Duo is made up of two sisters, Irma Yolanda and Blanca Griselda, who are each married. Irma has worked for several years making napkins and weaving San Juan style Güipil garments, as well as sewing traditional skirts from this region. Irma sells her products in different parts of her region and has used her business to support her husband and provide an education for her three children, two of whom are in 4th and 2nd grade. This is why she is requesting this loan, since she has told us that she needs more capital to buy the raw materials for textile production.

Blanca, who also works in textiles, has managed to set up a small store in her house where she sells everyday products, since there are no stores nearby and her neighbors had to travel large distances to find what they needed. Now she can offer them basic products such as beans, rice, corn, sugar, etc. Her wish is to continue to stock her small business in order to provide better service, but the capital that she invested is not sufficient, so that is why she sees the need to request another loan in order to achieve her dream.
