A loan of $1,550 helped a member purchase threads for weaving.

Buena Vista Group's story

Margarita is a single mother, 43 years old, completed two years of primary school, and has six children, two of of whom are in school. She weaves guipiles (regional clothing of the indigenous people) and traditional clothing. She started this business that her mother taught her, and to date, has 30 years of experience in this field.

She decided to organize a group and request a loan that she will use to purchase threads for weaving the guipiles and traditional clothes. In the future she wants to have more capital to be able to produce more and be able to sell in other places. The other group members weave guipiles and traditional clothes. In the photo, there are seven members, but only five of them took the loan.

In this group: Margarita, Marta, Andrea, Eluvia, Ana Lucia
