Mujeres Para El Desarrollo Group's story

Mujeres Para el Desarrollo (Women for Development) is in its second cycle of the committee program. They are carrying out the poverty elmination survey from which the situation of each woman who is surveyed can be known and in this way they can work together.

One of the members is Evany who in her most recent survey had a level two poverty level, meaning that she has a medium level of earnings. She puts her greatest effort in every day to improve her and her family's lives each day. Evany makes a living making clothing. She comments that thanks to the good work that she does, she has a good clientele that always brings her lots of work. Thanks to these orders, she can sustain her family.

Evany is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of fabric, thread, bands, and fasteners. In this way she will meet her customers' needs as she has already done in the past.
