12 De Junio Group's story

15 women from the city of Coronel Oviedo got together to form the group called "12th of June," and today they are already in their 9th loan cycle. This is thanks to the fact that they are all working and helping one another. There are optimistic and have a great fighting spirit, and want to get ahead in life.

Claudia is a part of this group, and says that she sells embroidered sandals, which she herself makes. She has always had a lot of creativity and is now putting it to use to be able to help her family. She is a person with a strong desire to grow in life and she wants to continue with her work. It's for this reason that she is asking for this loan, so that she can invest it in buying sandals, thread, sequins, needles, and on top of that, to be able to continue with her embroidery and her sales.
