Las Amapolas Group's story

The communal bank "Las Amapolas" is in its fourth loan cycle of the women's committee program. According the survey on elimination of poverty, which is a way of determining each member's economic situation, four of these women are below the poverty line with a very low income.

Justa is one of the members of the group and she is a talented, hard-working person. She is very good at what she does and this is why things are going well for her. She works as a seamstress to earn a living to support her family. Her customers are her best publicity because she always does a good job. She is grateful for this opportunity because it will help not only her but also her family.

She is requesting a loan to buy fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, closures and other supplies so she can continue sewing and filling customer orders.
