A loan of $500 helped purchase of materials to produce hand-made tiles.

Maria's story

The member MARIA is a native of the Piñipampa area in the Cusco department. She is located 40 minutes from the same city.

Our member is 34 years old and is a single mother. She has 2 children and alternates her work in the home with manufacturing. This area is known in Spanish as the area of the piñis, these are small seeds from different trees that are dried and are made into various adornments. They are small and almost always used to make embroidered figures on clothing. The member alternates her home activities with the production of handmade tiles, for this reason our member needs the loan to be able to purchase materials to continue with her home-made items.

The member graciously gives thanks for the support that she is given by this means and she promises to complete the payment of her loan in the scheduled period.
