A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy thread and decorative embroideries for weaving.

Sion Group's story

María Elena is married and is 39 years old. She didn't have the opportunity to study and never had children.

She makes her living weaving traditional skirts. She started this business with little capital and few materials. She now has 8 years of experience, and counts on the support of her husband, who also makes his living weaving traditional skirts.

She has organized a group to be able to apply for a loan, which she will use to buy materials for her business, specifically embroideries of various designs and threads.

She hopes to continue prospering in her business and to be able to have employees in the future. The rest of the members of the group make their living in selling, weaving and animal husbandry.

In this group: Maria Elena, Maria Zacarias, Maria Silveria, Maria Isabel, Juana, Victoriana, Isabel, Silvia Catalina, Regina, Maria, Agustina
