Dina Nohemi's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy rolls of thread to make hammocks to sell.

Dina Nohemi's story

Dina finished the fourth grade in school. She lives with her life partner who is a farmer. She has four children; two of them work and two go to school.

Dina has been devoted to making and selling hammocks for 14 years, a skill she learned from her parents. She also has experience raising pigs and chickens.

Thanks to the previous two loans she received, she was able to continue working. Dina has finished paying them and is requesting a new loan to buy rolls of thread to make hammocks to sell.

Dina dreams of improving the condition of her house.
