A loan of $950 helped a member to buy fabric and thread.

Sewenkani-25 Group's story

Sewenkani-25 Solidarity Group is made up of two members, a man and a woman.

José is the coordinator of the group. He's 34 years old and has two sons, ages 10 and 12. José makes a living making and sewing garments. He lives in the Sewenkani area. This is José's second loan with the institution and he's going to use it to buy fabric, thread, and other things for his business.

Julia makes a living selling candied peanut sweets. She'll invest in buying peanuts by the quintal to make the sweets. Her reason for requesting the loan is the lack of cash, which doesn't let her grow in her business. This is a challenge because the customers are small producers and she has little capital.

They want to grow more in their businesses, and they're going to use the profits to continue buying material and supplies so the businesses grow and they can have a better quality of life.

In this group: Julia Lucia, Jose Manuel
