Las Águilas Group's story

Manuela is 39 years old. In the photo, she is the second person in the back row, wearing a purple blouse. She has eight children. Her oldest child is an adult and is working at a community health center. The remaining seven children are students.

Manuela earns her income by making and selling traditional clothes (skirts, dresses, and sashes). She started this business 20 years ago because she needed to support her children’s education. Her business is very profitable since all of the women in her community are seen wearing these types of clothes. In addition, she sells in the neighboring communities.

Manuela needs a loan in order to buy supplies (thread in different colors) for making traditional clothes. Her goal is for all of her children to graduate and pursue some type of profession so that they can have homes of their own.
