A loan of $4,000 helped to buy machinery and special equipment to make her macrame products and to generate better earnings.


Edith Beatriz's story

Edith, age 60, is an enterprising woman. She has four professional daughters, who are not dependent upon her. Edith retired from teaching over three years ago. Now she wants to establish a shop for macrame weaving. This is a dream she has had since she was very young. She has the requisite training for this type of weaving.

She needs the loan to buy machinery and special equipment to make her products and to establish her own shop in this way. She currently has a bookstore. She has good prospects because getting ahead is what motivates her the most, and she has several goals to achieve. She wants to get working capital that will allow her to have greater financial stability.

Edith comes from a humble and, most of all, hard-working family. She has been instilled with the values of humility, the good administration of resources, and respect. She has a vision for entrepreneurship and for reaching the objectives that she sets for herself over the course of her technical career.
