A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy fabric to sew.


Las Zutujiles Group's story

Socorro Ignacia is married and 48. She finished fifth grade and has seven children, three of whom are students. She makes handicrafts and traditional blouses. She was a sewing machine operator for another business before she started her own successful business 11 years ago. Her husband, who is a bricklayer, is supportive.

She organized a communal bank and applied for a loan that will be used to buy the fabric and thread needed to increase her traditional blouse production, since she expects the business to prosper. The other members are merchants and make handicrafts.
