Blanca Gradiola's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy wool.
Blanca Gradiola's story
Blanca, 42, is married and has two daughters aged 16 and 18. They attend school, while Blanca's husband works as a farmer harvesting oranges. Blanca has knitted with wool for 20 years, and she is asking for this loan in order to buy wool. She tells us that she acquires the wool in large quantities and distributes it to other women who also knit woollen garments and she pays them for their work. Blanca hopes that her business will improve and she can distribute the wool to more people and so increase her sales. All her efforts are in order to see her daughters happy as they attend school.
