Martha Ideria's story

Martha Ideria and her family live in Montecristi, a place known for its crafts which are recognized on a national and international level. This is also a place that was highly affected by COVID-19.

She is a hardworking woman who continues getting ahead along with her husband. They work making toquilla straw hats, and they have a workshop at their house where they perform this activity. She also sells clothing and footwear.

Before the pandemic, she used to go out and sell on the streets and from her house. Now she only sells by phone, since the fear of getting sick changed a lot of things.

This loan will be used to buy toquilla straw to make hats.
