A loan of $3,350 helped a member to buy materials for weaving textiles and guipiles [traditional blouses].

Union Femenil Del Comercio Group's story

Anastasia is a 45-year-old woman, widow and mother of 5 children, all of whom are studying. She did not have the opportunity to study and makes a living weaving textiles and guipiles [traditional blouses] from where she lives and from other areas. She started this business thanks to the support of her husband and, as of today, she has 8 years of experience.

She has put together a group to request a loan that she will use to buy materials, such as threads and textiles in different colors and designs. She expects to continue improving as she wants to attain greater capital and income. The other members in the group make artisan crafts.

In this group: Anastasia, Rosa, Yesica Josefina, Maria, Anastasia Ignacio, Francisca, Maria Eugenia, Ana*, Tomasa*, Martina Jeronimo
