Paula Lupe
The community bank called "Damas Del Futuro" gets together every fifteen days in the canton of Pajan, a canton known for its cattle. The rodeo is the main attraction of the region and is held often throughout the year.

This is where we met Paula. She is 36 years old, she is married, and she has three children who are 9, 4, and less than 4 months old. The older children attend school and her husband works in a transportation co-op.

Our friend has a workshop where she makes backpacks and bags. She learned this profession from her brothers who also work in the same business. Paula has three machines, and with two assistants, they are responsible for making made-to-order products for retailers that sell them in other locations. Now that school has started, they are very busy and have had to make a lot of backpacks to fulfill their customer's orders. She has worked for 6 years in this business and has made a good income.

This loan is to buy yarn, material, thread, and other materials that she will use to make backpacks. She has been through 3 loan cycles with the community bank and likes working with them because they are her close partners and are reliable.

Her dream is to be able to bring her products to other cities.
