A loan of $5,700 helped a member to purchase materials for making sweatshirts.

Superacion Group's story

Gregoria Mercedes is 20 years old and single. She completed her 'educación primaria' (education for children aged 7-14) and her business is making sweatshirts. She started this business with a small amount of capital and now has six years experience. She hopes, in the future, to have a large business with workers.

Gregoria got together a group so that she could request a loan to buy fabrics, to improve her sweatshirt production. The other members of the group make handicrafts from clay, weave sheets, raise animals, and run stores.
