View original language description ↓
Maria Eloisa belongs to the "Honesty and Work" communal bank and lives in Juanjui in the San Martín region of Peru. She is dedicated to making clothes and other sewn items for the general public. She is a widow, and with the desire to make headway for her children and be closer to them she left her job as a teacher to dedicate herself to what she most enjoys, sewing and crafts, and has invested all of her efforts and creativity into the activity.


With the $525 loan, which she plans to repay in six months, she will purchase diverse fabrics with various colors and designs by the meter; needles; buttons; fasteners; and other items to make sheets, towels, and clothes for women, boys and girls. Maria Eloisa is 39 years old, and lives with her two children. She plans to add a mending device to her sewing shop so she can improve her work on the items.
