A loan helped to buy bulrushes to produce and sell mats.

Senayda Joseline's story

Senayda studied at school until fifth grade. She is in a relationship and her partner works in agriculture. She has two children, one of whom studies.

Senayda makes a living in agriculture. She also produces mats and she learned this from her mother and sisters, because this activity is the most common one of the women of the area where she lives.

Senayda will use the loan to buy bulrushes to produce and sell mats.

Senayda dreams of giving a good education to her children and that they may become professionals.
