A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy raw materials to make sweatshirts.

Las Trabajadoras De Patziquibala Group's story

Ignacia is in a de-facto marriage. She’s 45-years-old and never went to school. She has three children who don’t attend school. She works manufacturing sweatshirts. She started the business with her husband’s help and to date has 8 years’ experience. She relies on her husband’s support; he’s a merchant.

She formed a group and requested a loan she’ll use to buy supplies like thread, fabric and buttons, among others to make the sweatshirts. She hopes in future to have a large locale in the municipality in order to earn higher profits.

The other group members work in commerce and raising domestic animals.

In this group: Maria, Candelaria, Margarita Isabel, Esperanza, Ignacia
