A loan helped to buy Eva foam.
Clara Rocio's story
Clara was born and lives in La Libertad. She has always enjoyed craft and so she took a course in making handicrafts with Eva foam when she was staying in the Galapagos Islands. Since then she has specialized in different areas. At first she started making her products as a hobby but she saw that people liked her work and so started to make products for sale. Clara works in her business from Monday to Friday and works alone. She generally starts working in the afternoon as she buys her materials in the morning. Clara tells us that the biggest risk she faces is crime when she travels to Guayaquil as she travels in a private car. Her husband, Walter, is in the navy and works in the port of Salinas. The couple have three dependent children who attend a state school. Clara will use this loan to buy Eva foam which she uses in making surprises for children's parties.
