Flores De Loreto Group's story

The "pollera" is the typical skirt of many women (Cholitas) in some regions of the country, this is accompanied by shawls and other characteristic accessories depending on the region. This skirt is the main element of business within the association "F. de Loreto". Most of the women in this group sell used skirts and shawls, while others work at setting up the businesses themselves. And others actually knit the shawls, with the help of some family members. The "F. de Loreto" group belongs to the central region of Los Andes, located in the area of Villa Tunari in the city of Alto. These women work with the hope of being able to save money in order to buy their own homes (since many are renting), and in turn, bring more conveniences to their children. With this loan they will hire assistants to help them increase their production, which will increase their sales and reap greater profits with the goal of saving for the welfare of their families.
