Guadalupana 3Ro. Group's story

Lorenza is 53 years old, married, and has four children, one of whom attends school. She did not have the opportunity to attend school herself. She knits typical clothing by hand, such as guipiles, started this business with her mother, and now has 25 years’ experience.

She is a member of a group and is asking for a loan so she can buy thread and fabric so she can make typical regional guipiles. In the future she wants to grow her business and hire employees to produce more.

The other members of the group knit and raise domesticated animals.

In this group: Lorenza, Juana, Maria Lourdes, Regina Encarnacion, Maria Gisela, Antonia, Maria Elena, Margarita
