Mirna Marilu's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy silk and poly-silk thread, which are materials that will enable her to make hammocks and meet the demands of the market.


Mirna Marilu's story

Mirna requests a new loan to increase her business productivity while also generate income to support her family. The loan will be invested in buying silk and poly-silk thread, which are materials that will enable her to make hammocks and meet the demands of the market.

Her previous loan had a positive impact on her business; she could keep working, and she was able to make her loan repayments. It has not made substantial changes to her environment.
