Angela Cristina's story

Angela Cristina lives in Montecristi canton. It is known both nationally and internationally for it's rich pre-colonial culture and it's crafts.

She is a hard-working woman who thanks to her labor and to the loans gets ahead. She has a factory where together with her children she makes buttons make from tagua (Phytelephas). Once a week they deliver what they produce to merchants who come to get them or they deliver them in Manta. For her the loans are always very important as this is how she finances her business.

This loan will be used to buy tagua and other raw materials used to make buttons. Her dream is to continue to improve her factory.
