Obreras Productivas Group's story

Germán, who is the only man in the photograph, is a member of the Obreras Productivas communal bank, located in Villarrica. The members of this communal bank are in large part artisans, pastry chefs, and sellers of new and used clothing. Germán is an artisan who makes rope for maceteros (decorative ceramic pots). He started this work as a hobby, since he learned it in school, and five or six years ago he took it on as another job. He has not had big problems with his business, except for the lack of time to be able to cover all the orders he receives for his beautiful crafts. The money he is asking for will be used to buy materials like wire, sisal, and decorations for the cords. What he has liked most about being able to work with Fondo Esperanza the fact that he can participate alongside people who have his same interests.
