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

A loan helped me expand our local designer shop to the town of Ponce, in south of our Island.

Aimar's story

Since I was little, I've always loved everything creative. My college concentration was in Architecture, where I developed my eye for design. As I was in college, I was always creating handmade jewelry with leftover materials from my college projects and loved selling my creations on the side. When I was finishing my master's, I started what is now my own brand of accessories, called Botón de Azúcar, and fell in love with the process of creating unique pieces that people identify with and want to carry with them. Participating in different events with my brand, led me to immerse myself in the community of local designers and makers and develop a passion for what everyone can create, and how these quality local products deserve more exposure. This is what led me to open Chroma Local Design Shop over 5 years ago. A shop dedicated to the curation and exposure of brands by local designers, artists, and makers in our newest shopping center.
