A loan helped to buy agave in bulk to make into rope.

Blanca Sonia's story

Blanca is married. She lives with her husband and two daughters. Her daughters are minors and depend on her financially. Blanca works making and selling rope from agave. She learned this work 30 years ago with the help of her husband, since he works growing henequen (a type of agave plant), and also makes rope. They both work to keep the business alive.

She is requesting a loan to have the economic resources she needs to grow the inventory of her business. The funds granted will enable her to buy agave in bulk, from which she will have raw material to create rope and other products. Her objective is to strengthen the inventory of her business and increase her sales in order to generate more earnings.

Her dreams are to improve her family's quality of life and to keep working to grow her business.
