San Antonio Group's story

Maria is single, 23 years old, and did not have the opportunity to study. She makes a living making handicrafts, specifically sewing and embroidery of blouses. She began this business as an employee and now has 6 years of experience.

Maria organized a group to be able to apply for a loan, which she will use to buy materials to make more blouses and recover her investment with the profits she makes. In the future she hopes to employ workers for her business.

The other members make their livings raising animals, doing embroidery, domestic work and farming.

In this group: Santos, Sebastiana, Maria, Santa, Ana Maria
