A loan of $3,225 helped a member to buy fabric and thread to use in her tailoring shop.


Mburucuya Group's story

Mburucuya is doing the poverty-elimination survey to get to know the situation of each one of their lives and their incomes. They are in their fifth term of the committee program, and they are receiving training in order to get ahead.

One of the members is Rosa, who in her last survey, showed a poverty level within level three. That is, she has good income and should continue working and maintaining herself at this level. Among the work that she does is that of tailoring, and she has her own clientele.

The work of the assessors should also be highlighted, as they give permanent follow-up of training and verifications that in some way demand more of the women and at the same time motivate them to fight to overcome poverty.

Rosa is applying for this loan to buy fabric and thread to be able to continue with her tailoring work, which will help her to solidify her business plan, which will help her improve her income.
