A loan of $3,850 helped a member to buy thread for making baskets.

Mujeres Mayas Group's story

María Angelica is 30 years old and is married. She has education up to second grade of primary school. She has 5 children and 3 of them are at school. María Angelica earns a living making baskets. She started her business with a small amount of capital which her mother gave her and has had the business for 10 years. She is the organizer of a group and is asking for a loan which she will use to buy thread for making the baskets. In the future she would like to have more capital and a store to sell the baskets.

The other members of the group earn a living selling clothing, doing embroidery and making baskets.
