A loan of $3,400 helped a member to buy cloths to embroider.


Mujeres De La Cienaga Group's story

Marta is a 42-year-old single mother who did not have the chance to go to school. She has four children, three of whom are students. She embroiders blouses, a skill she performed as an operator for a family business, and she now has 20 years of experience. Her husband, a day laborer, helps her. She is organizing a group to apply for a loan which she will use to buy materials to embroider blouses. She hopes to employ several workers for her business, thereby generating income for others. The other members of the communal bank raise livestock and embroider blouses.
