Johaihupape Ñamba´apo Group's story

The group, “JOHAIHUPAPE ÑAMBA´APO” is made up of 17 women who are very well-organized, united, hard-working, and supportive of one another. These women are from the city of Villarrica, where they are all friends and neighbors. One of the members is Maria. She is a craftswoman, and she tells us that she has done this work for a long time. She learned her trade and since then, she has been dedicated to it. Through her work, she has been able to help her family and give them what they need to have a better lifestyle. She is requesting this loan to buy thread, needles, and fabric to continue weaving her traditional craftwok. Her goal is to continue working and helping her family.
