Elena Yamileth's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy tule to make and sell petates (sleeping mats).

Elena Yamileth's story

Elena, age 25, has a life partner who is a farmer, and a young child. She works making and selling petates (sleeping mats made from tule), and she learned this activity from her family, since it is one of the most common activities in the area.

She needs this loan to buy tule to continue with her production and sale of petates. Elena’s dream is to have better housing conditions.
