A loan helped to purchase soil, sawdust, and to pay laborers to make roof tiles.

Martha Beatriz's story

Martha lives in El Tejar, a place far removed from the city of Ibarra, in Ecuador. She lives with her spouse and they work making roof tiles. Thanks to this artisan business, they have been able to get ahead.

Martha needs a loan to purchase supplies to make roof tiles such as soil, sawdust, and to pay laborers to make roof tiles to fill a special tile order. Martha is very grateful for your help.
