LaMontanita Women Start a Business

posted in: Uncategorized 0

In January Lorraine Kelley and Catherine Vandegrift encouraged the ladies in LaMontanita to form a sewing group and create items which could be sold through our churches. The ladies quickly organized and appointed Reyna (red and white apron in photo) as their leader. We picked up their second “order” and delivered their first real profits – about $20. The work is 100% original. It includes napkins, table mats, bread covers and bags. To our surprise they had made 50 more! They have big plans for their earnings.

In a ….where did I see God today? moment, Juana, the midwife, told us…the women used to sit in their houses, now they get together to work on their project and make plans for their dreams.
