San Cristobal- Sapallanga Group's story

Jina is a young, 35 year old mother that has two small children. She works making and renting costumes for all occasions. Jina and her partner have dedicated themselves to this business for a few years now, and their income has helped them to educate their children.

The loan will help her quickly fulfill orders from her customers, most of which are from colleges, schools and preschools in her area. Jina will take this opportunity to purchase fabrics and different colored threads, since Christmas is approaching and her orders have increased.

Her dream is to have her own store close to the main street in her town, so that her income will increase and she will be able to support her children's education. Jina and her family are happy that there are people who are willing to help and they are thankful for their support.
