Weaving into Success
Weaving into Success

The silk weavers in the municipality of Timbio had no access to traditional forms of credit before FMM-Popoyan began working with them. They were farmers and craftswomen who had little capital or credit history. After being able to access banking and lending services from FMM-Popoyan, the craftswomen and farmers have been able to expand their businesses. The no longer make only silk scarves, but they also make pants and blouses as well, because they are able to purchase more modern looms. The craftswomen have the opportunity to purchase new tools, infrastructure, and capital, all thanks to their relationship with FMM-Popoyan.
