Mirna Aracely's story

Mirna studied until sixth grade and for economic reasons, could not continue studying because she had to work to support her parents. She is in a relationship and has two daughters who study in school.

Mirna has worked for approximately six years in the fields with her brother whom she supports with the harvest. In addition to this, she makes a living by making hammocks. Another one of her jobs is dressmaking, which she learned from a program that was given by the city hall.

She needs the loan to buy thread to make hammocks and to buy a new sewing machine. Therefore, she will have an income so her daughters can continue attending school. Previously, she was supported by a loan and paid the debt without problems.

Her dream is to work strongly so that her daughters have all they need, to have her own home, and to give a better quality of life to her family.
