A loan of $350 helped purchase wool and dye.


Josefina's story

Josefina is a member of the Alondras Community Bank. She is a 45-year-old married mother of five children. Josefina, along with her husband, weave artisan handicrafts such as rugs, which they do with the help of two other people. Their sales are carried out through intermediaries. Josefina is requesting a loan of 1000 soles (approximately $350), which she plans to use to purchase wool and dye. Her dream is to have a gallery and to provide her children with a good education.
