A loan of $2,350 helped a member to buy traditional huipils to offer for sale.

Mujeres Emprendedoras Zona 4 Group's story

Eva is 19 years old and a single mother. She did not have the opportunity to study. She works buying and selling traditional huipils [a traditional garment made from woven and embroidered fabric varying in length from blouse to dress]. She began this business working with family members, and now she has eight years of experience in it.

Eva is the organizer of this group. She is requesting a loan to increase her working capital to buy various merchandise, as at the moment her business is not well stocked. She hopes in the future to have a store from which to sell and distribute to other municipalities.

The other members of the group work at selling traditional clothing, raising and selling livestock and making blouses.

In this group: Eva, Rosa, Melida Guadalupe, Marcelina Concepcion, Sebastiana, Manuela, Silvia Filiciana, Maria Luisa
