A loan of $3,575 helped a member to buy thread and wool.


Las Azucenas Group's story

Julia is a member of the “Las Azucenas” group made up of eight responsible and enterprising women. Julia, 46, is married and has seven children, five of whom are still dependent. She currently makes her living producing sweaters, scarves, gloves and bedspreads which she makes to order. She started this activity 20 years ago, and the fruit of her labor was the purchase of two sewing machines which facilitates the sewing process.

With the aim of continuing to improve, Julia is seeking the loan to buy materials such as threads and wool in a larger quantity. Her greatest dream is to buy another sewing machine.

Julia, along with the "Las Azucenas" group, is grateful for the loan given as it makes her progress possible. Julia is in the rear row, the first on the left and is wearing a blue sweater.

In this group: Bonifacia, Julia, Nidia, America Isabel, Maria Isabel, Vilma, Ana Rosa, Delia
