Donilia Concepcion's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase tule [plant fibers] for making bedrolls to sell.

Donilia Concepcion's story

Due to lack of economic resources, Donilia never had the opportunity to attend school. She is in a relationship and her partner works in agriculture. She has four children, of whom three are in school.

Donilia has been making sleeping mats since she was very little. She learned from her parents and siblings. She hand-makes this traditional product in order to generate income to cover household expenses. In this way she helps her partner to get ahead.

She also raises pigs and grows basic grains with her partner.

She has received three prior loans and has already repaid them. She needs a new loan in order to buy tule (plant fiber) for making and selling sleeping mats.

Donilia's dream is to provide her children with a good academic education.
