Edilma Yolanda's story

Edilma Yolanda and her family live in Los Bajos de Montecristi. The place is well-known for its handicrafts.

Edilma and her husband do what they can to earn an income and help their family to move forward. They make a living producing and selling bricks. This allows them to earn a living but sometimes it is not enough to cover certain urgent costs. Now is one of those times that they need a loan as their daughter needs a computer. She has a lot of homework and research to do in order to be a great professional.

This loan will be used to buy a computer. Edilma’s dream is that her daughter becomes a professional.
