A loan of $3,075 helped a member to buy thread for making traditional embroidered dresses.

Sector Vi Saquilla Group's story

Sra. Tomasa is 39 years old, married, and did not have the opportunity to go to school. She has two children (ages 7 and 4) who are currently in school. Tomasa is an artisan who specializes in making traditional dresses. She started this business after learning the trade from her mother. As of now, she has three years of experience.

Tomasa organized a group so that she could request a loan. She will use the money to buy thread for making her embroidered works. In the future, she would like to have a workshop with employees so that she can sell in bulk quantities and offer a variety of traditional dresses.

The other members of the group are merchants and artisans. In the photo, there are only five members who appear. The other member was not able to attend the meeting at the time the photo was taken.

In this group: Petronila, Jacinta, Micaela, Juana, Francisca*, Tomasa
