Progreso Femenino Group's story

The group is made up of 12 women and the committee is named "El progreso femenino" (Woman's progress), the women meet weekly to pay their quotas and get training and have a good time among neighbors.

One humble person, but also very hard working, is Martina, who is a seamstress. She comments that she has always done good work and that this has given her a good reputation and this has helped her have more customers and continue to grow her business little by little with her work. Martina dreams to have a bigger workshop and also in the future be able to hire people who need work.

She is asking for a loan to purchase fabric, thread, elastics and other supplies in order to continue working on her orders.

In this group: Ana, Olga, Sonia, Mercedes, Liz, Jhoana, Roxana, Patricia, Martina, Rosmary, Gessica, Lucia
