A loan of $4,500 helped a member to invest in the maintenance of her sewing machine.

Sol Group's story

Dedicated and persistent, these women decided to call the group "Sol" [Sun], as they believe that the day is made for work.

Petra, one of its members, is a housewife devoted to her home. By doing favors for her neighbors, she discovered a business opportunity, sewing. With a sewing machine that she sews with at home, she started to mend her neighbors' clothes. Word spread and she realized she actually had a real business.

She would like to use this loan today in order to maintain her machine and thus be able to continue to offer this service as well as grow her clientele.

In this group: Alejandra Evangelina, Ana Alicia, Lilia, Olga Lidia, Petra, Veronica
