Marica's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy bags of cut pieces of fabrics, and other materials associated with making this art.
Although only one woman, Marica, had mastered her art from childhood and has made a professional living from this skill. Today the 48-year-old professional weaver sells her merchandise from a stall at a local Handicraft Center. She receives special orders to weave doormats for people and even does orders for members of the government. Due to high demand she has requested a loan to help in purchasing bags of cut pieces of fabrics, and other materials associated with making this art.
