A loan helped to buy wicker.
Ana Ofelia's story
Ana is 64 years old. She is a struggling person due to scarce resources. She did not go to school but she learned to weave. From the time she was little, she helped her parents to make woven mats and she helped them with the agricultural jobs. She lives with her daughter-in-law, one son and one grandson, because her older son moved to the United States a while ago. Ana currently works making woven mats, and to buy the materials that she needs, she has to walk an hour to get to the place where they harvest the wicker. As she has no mode of transport, she has to carry the material on her head back to her house. Ana is asking for a loan to buy wicker, because she does not have enough money to buy it. This way, she can continue with her business and her work will not stop. She dreams of getting to see her son, who is in the United States, again.
