Zonia Glicelda
View original language description ↓
Over the years, Glicelda has been perfecting the technique and design of her knitwork. She started knitting by hand, but time and experience have turned her into a skilled and talented woman in this art. Her reasons for working with so much dedication are her 4 underage children, who need care, nourishment, and an education. Meanwhile, her husband, Máximo, does seasonal work as a master bricklayer, which affects their modest household finances. For this reason, Glicelda decided to increase her clothing production. She is requesting this current loan in order to obtain materials (wool) and strengthen her knitting workshop.
