Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

“Virgen del Carmen” is a group from the city of Paraguarí; it’s in cycle #9 in the women’s committee program. They are working and striving to get ahead and to give their families everything they themselves were unable to have.

María is one of the members. She relates that she’s a seamstress. She does all kinds of services for her customers and they themselves then recommend her good work. She relates that she’s worked since she was young to help her family. Her wish is to be able to establish a spacious sewing workshop in order to also provide employment for others.

She’s asking for this loan to buy fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, and others because these are the main supplies she always uses in her sewing. She’s grateful for the opportunity she’s getting because she’ll be able to continue to grow.

In this group: Victoria, Fidelina, Alba, Tranquilina, Sonia, Olga, María, Carmen, Sonia, Emilse, Romina, Liz, Francisca, María, Elaine, Guillermina, Cirila, Carola, Juana*
