A loan of $950 helped purchase raw materials.

Teresa's story

Teresa O. T. is 45 years old, married and lives with her four children. She is an artisan who has been making a living making typical garments for the past five years. She resides in the village of Xapatan Aldea Chipuac, department of Totonicapán, Guatemala, but her living conditions are not sufficient, which is why she is turning to Kiva partner Asociación ASDIR. She is requesting a loan because her customers' demands for her products and her work has grown and she needs to purchase raw materials in order to meet their demands. This will generate more sources of work and improve her income and help her provide a better education for her children.
