Las Mercedes Group's story

The group Las Mercedes in the city of Luque was started by one of its members, who wanted to help her friends and neighbors, and motivated them to do their utmost best in order to get ahead.

One of these members, Julia, works sewing. She is married to Victor. She has requested the loan to purchase fabric, thread, and other sewing supplies. She works at home along with her mother. They both work for a factory but she hopes to one day have a larger and more personal business so that production improves.
