A loan of $775 helped a member to buy merchandise to sell products such as traditional hand-woven clothing.


Palmeras Palestina Group's story

Isabel is 55 years old, married and has 8 children, six of whom are studying. She did not have the opportunity to study and works selling second-hand clothing. She buys the clothing in different places and then alters and sells it. She started this business with the support of her family and now has 10 years of experience with it. Her husband, who works in farming, helps her.

She has organized a group and is applying for a loan that she will use to buy merchandise to sell. She wants to buy traditional hand-woven clothing, traditional tunics and blouses, woven belts and sashes, and sheets, among other things. She hopes in the future to have a large business and that her children will have academic degrees.
