Dúo Martina De San Pedro Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase material for making traditional artisan items to sell.

Dúo Martina De San Pedro Group's story

The group's leader is Martina who has for various years been elaborating and selling artisan goods, utilizing a variety of materials such as enameled paper, paintings of different colors, glitter, and aniline-based dies for painting the paper to decorate each artisan work.

For that reason, Martina is requesting a new loan to purchase enameled paper, aniline dies, and glitter. She has a large order to fill and needs to make a sizeable investment. Her existing capital will not suffice, since the price of some materials has grown.

Martina continues to work hard to retain her shop in a local terminal. Martina has not given up since she knows that with work and patience, she can achieve her goal.
