A loan of $4,025 helped a member to buy fabric and thread for sewing.


San Roque Group's story

The San Roque group is part of a poverty eradication program in which women survey the 50 indicators that determine the status of their lives, and work to improve their lives accordingly. Ms. Dominga displayed a poverty level of two in her latest survey (average levels, in other words) and that she should continue to be confident, and through her work improve her lifestyle and her family's as well. She is a seamstress and has a small workshop that she was able to get off the ground with much hard work and helped her family get ahead in this way. She is very hardworking and above all, she has the courage to continue to grow and excel. Ms. Dominga requests this loan to purchase fabric and thread to allow her to continue with her work as she has been doing, and grow and improve her life.
