A loan helped to purchase silk thread and other accessories for hammock production and also to have money available to pay the salaries of other artisans who work for her.


Alejandra's story

Alejandra decided to request a new loan to strengthen her business since thus she will be able to have merchandise in stock to meet market demands.

She will invest the funds loaned in the purchase of silk thread and other accessories for hammock production. She will also have money available to pay the salaries of other artisans who work for her.
