Ana Verónica's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy string to make and sell hammocks.

Ana Verónica's story

Ana attended school through the sixth grade. She is a single mother and has a son who attends school.

For two years Ana has worked making and selling hammocks, a job she learned from her mother. She works from home, from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. She also sells tortillas.

Ana will use the loan to buy string to make and sell hammocks. Her dream is to improve her hammock business and provide good living conditions to her family.
