A loan of $1,575 helped a member purchase needle and thread.

Ñepytyvo Group's story

The group Ñepytyvo is in its first loan cycle with the women’s committee, where the majority of the members work and help one another get ahead. They are doing a study on the elimination of poverty; six of the members are below the poverty line. Above all, the members are fighting to better their lives and get ahead.

One of the members is Gregoria, who crochets and does embroidery to earn an income to support her family. She says that life is difficult, but she works hard because she doesn’t want her family to suffer any of the hardships that she had to endure.

She is requesting the loan to invest in needle and thread, which she can use to continue doing embroidery and earning the income they need.

In this group: Sandra, Elida, Nancy, Gladys, Vidalia, Sonia, Doris, Gregoria, Mirian, Cynthia, Liz*
