A loan of $2,225 helped a member to buy wood to make furniture.


Tzamcotom Group's story

Catarina, 52 years old, is married. She did not have the opportunity to study. She and her husband do not have children. She makes and sells wooden furniture. She set up this business with her husband, and now has 8 years of experience. She has the support of her husband and they both carry out the same work. She set up a group to apply for a loan which she will use to buy wood, as they want to produce more furniture and increase their earnings. In the future she hopes to have more workers and so differentiate their product. The other members make and sell wooden furniture.
