Las Perlas Group's story

This group composed of women from the city of Itá is called “Las Perlas” (The Pearls). It formed thanks to one of the members who gathered friends and neighbors from the neighborhood together to form the group. Las Perlas has worked with the Fundación since 2008 and stands out for its team work and solidarity. Elena is one of these women. She tells us that she’s a dressmaker. She’s been doing this for quite some time so she has a good clientele already. She works hard every day to earn income to give her family everything they need for a good life. She is asking for Kiva help to buy fabric, thread, glue and other supplies to make clothes in her workshop.

In this group: Acela , Basilia , Perla , Teodora , Elena , Emilia , Mirtha , Alba , Marta , Lilian *, Maria, Paulina , Alba , Maria, Graciela , Nancy *, Mabel *
