Las Margaritas De Nimasac 2 Group's story

Catarina is married and is 45 years old. She didn’t have the opportunity to attend school. She works weaving traditional skirts. She started this business with tied and knitted threads and, as a weaver, she has 15 years of experience. She has the support of her husband who works in the production of textiles.

She organized a group of women and they are requesting a loan that will be used for the purchase of threads of various colors and sample fabrics in order to improve their productions of textiles. In the future she hopes to have several workers and to have a large business. The other members work in agriculture and livestock and in weaving.

In this group: Jesusa, Catarina, Maria Magdalena, Santa Criciliana, Isabel
