A loan of $450 helped a member to buy raw materials to weave traditional textiles.

Dúo Misión Santa Group's story


Maria Emiliana is originally from the Xetzac village in the town of Tecpan. For several years, she has worked weaving skirts on looms and then selling the skirts. Thankfully business has grown enough since she started with one loom that she now has four looms. She has her looms at home; her husband works. With the support of her entire family, she continues to work and has deliveries of her skirts going to the surrounding towns, now that her product is well-known in the market and her clients know her.

Her dream is to expand the business to buy two more looms to earn better profits and improve the lives of her family and this way send their children to school for a better future. She is requesting this loan for the purchase of raw materials for the weaving of traditional textiles.
