Miramar Group's story

The communal bank Miramar comprises nineteen enterprising craftswomen who reside in the same community. All of the members of the group work making different crafts, such as ceramics and embroidery. Their talents have allowed them to get ahead and help their families with their running expenses.

Rosana is one of its members and she is a craftswoman. She makes embroidered lace and ñanduti (a particular traditional style of embroidered lace) which she attaches to sheets, pillows, tablecloths, placemats, clothing, etc.

She will use the requested loan to purchase the materials she needs, such as needles, thread, lace, scissors, fabric, etc. This will allow her business to reach a larger customer base, generate more income, and increase personnel capability.

In this group: Rosana, Ignacia, Myrian, Liz , Aida, Francisca, Mirtha, Digna, Blanca, Juana, Francisca, Maria, Ramona, Maria, Alberta, Maria, Gregoria, Digna, Silvia
