A loan of $3,200 helped a member to buy sewing materials.

Estrellas De Belen Group's story

Lucia, 26, is single and did not have the opportunity to get an education. She works as a seamstress and makes beachwear and pants. She started her business as an employee and has six years' experience.

She has organized a group and is requesting a loan to buy sewing materials such as fabric, thread, needles, etc. In the future she hopes to have more sewing machines and employees so she can produce wholesale products.

The other members of the group also work in the sewing business.

One of the members was unable to be present for the photo.
