Maria Santiago's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to purchase silk thread and fabric lining to produce hammocks and to invest in animal feed to enhance her farm inventory.


Maria Santiago's story

Maria asks for a new loan to strengthen her businesses as she continues to work in raising farmyard birds and in the craft of weaving agave fiber.
She will use this loan to purchase silk thread and fabric lining to produce hammocks and she will also invest in animal feed to enhance her farm inventory.
The previous loan helped her feeding her farm chickens better and getting increased revenues when selling the chickens due to their higher weight.
Her family group is still the same and it is currently in better living and health conditions.
