Gilma De Los Ángeles's story

Gilma did not have the opportunity to attend school. She is married and her husband is a blacksmith. They have three dependent children.

Gilma makes and sells machetes, having learned this skill from her husband who knows all about smithing. She works at home from 4:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. Gilma previously sold fruit to earn a living.

She needs a loan to buy more iron and coal so that she can continue making machetes to sell. Her dream is to have a farm and generate more income so that her children can study and someday become professionals.
