Emanuel Group's story

"Emanuel" is the excellent women's group from the city of Itá that formed thanks to getting in contact with the advisor on one of her visits to the area. The group has 19 women who find themselves on their fourth loan cycle, working comfortably together and supporting each other within the program.

Nancy, a member of this group, earns her living sewing. She has been a dressmaker for a while, and thanks to her hard work, she is making progress. She is an excellent person who, despite certain obstacles, is getting ahead. Her goal is to be able to have a large sewing workshop and to be able to provide jobs to other people in her neighborhood, because she knows that this is a difficult time.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, zippers, and more, so that she can use them in her workshop and continue working.

In this group: Carmen, Nancy, Liz, Carmen, Petrona, Paula, Gloria, Mercedes, Yessica, Florentina, Bernarda, Mitha, Graciela, Julia, Lourdes, Luciana, Sixta, Maria, Rossana*
