Narcisa Del Pilar
Narcisa began selling afternoon snacks from the doorstep of her house to people who pass through the area. Due to her low earnings, she decided to quit and start another business. With little investment, she began selling crafts.
Making and selling handicrafts generates good revenue, so it is now her main business activity. She works alone every weekend. She produces handmade dolls, rag dolls, chains, and other items. With this loan, she wants to improve her home and buy cement, blocks, and stone for her business.
In the future, she wants to build a better house and provide her children with a better education.
Narcisa empezó vendiendo meriendas en la puerta de su casa a todas las personas que pasaban caminando, pero debido a los malos ingresos que tenia decidió retirarse y empezar otra actividad. Por esa mala decisión tuvo que iniciar un nuevo negocio con poca inversión e inicio la venta de artesanías.
La venta de artesanías le rindió buenas ganancias y ahora es su principal actividad, trabaja todos los fines de semana sola. Ella hace muñecos de maneras, muñecos de trapos, cadenas etc. Con el préstamo quiere construir mejor su casa y comprar cemento, bloques y piedras para su negocio.
En el futuro quiere construir mejor su casa y poder darle una mejor educación a sus hijos.
