La Union Hace La Fuerza Group's story

Cirila is a hardworking, tenacious woman who has worked since she was very young. When she married the father of her children she set up a sewing shop at home to help feed her children since her husband’s a musician and only works occasionally.

Cirila makes cloth aprons (typical of the region) that she sells herself in street fairs and markets around her community. Cirila will use the received loan to buy fabric, thread, buttons and others to increase production of items thus generating higher income and improving her home’s quality of life.
