A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy cloth to embroider.


Mujeres De Chitocche Group's story

Cipriana is a single parent and is 35 years old. She never had the chance to go to school. She has 3 children and one of them goes to school. She embroiders guipiles [traditional indigenous blouses] and then sells them. She started this business because she needed to support her children and give them everything she could. To date she has 10 years of experience.

She has decided to organize a group in order to apply for a loan which would enable her to buy cloth and thread so she can embroider the blouses. In the future she would like her capital to be much greater so she can produce more and so improve her income.

The other members of the group work in business and have livestock.

In this group: Cipriana , Antonia , Catarina Jertrudis , Francisca , Antonia Miriam , Susana , Sayda Catarina
