A loan of $1,000 helped purchase craft materials.

Nora's story

Nora is a hardworking woman who is 31 years old. She lives with her son in her parents' home. For more than 3 years, she has been making and selling handicrafts, and at the same time, she accepts orders for fruit and delivers them to her customers’ homes. Every morning, she sells her crafts from a stall near the center of the city. To increase her inventory, she also sells works produced by other artists. Nora says the best times for her business are during the holidays, mainly Founder’s Day (July), Christmas (December), and other celebrations such as patron saint festivals and civic gatherings. In her years of experience making handicrafts, she has learned to improve the design of her creations. Nora hopes that in the future she will have a shop with large beautiful display cases for exhibiting her work.

This is her third loan with MFP, and during that time, her fellow members have noticed that she has developed as a person. She is encouraged to continue taking advantage of this form of credit. The money she is requesting will be used to buy materials used in her creations (dolls, traditional blankets, etc.). She will also purchase finished pieces of wood and fruit in bulk.
