A loan of $5,325 helped a member to buy fabric and thread for her work as a seamstress.

Sagrada Familia Group's story

The communal bank Sagrada Familia has been working with the foundation since 2006. It is made up of 17 women who have various activities in order to be able to help their families and through that work go on growing not only personally but as entrepreneurs. They are in their ninth cycle.

Dina, of of the members, works as a seamstress. She has a small workshop where she makes all kinds of garments, and thus she has the necessary means to help her family. In the beginning it was a little difficult, but through her efforts she has cleared the path. Her dream is to continue working and growing.

She is asking for help to be able to buy fabric and thread and so continue making garments and responding to her customers.
