A loan helped to buy wood.


Felipa's story

Felipa is 57, married, and has two adult children. She lives with her husband. Felipa has been working in carpentry for more than 10 years. She learned this trade later in life, having worked in other areas before without much luck. Currently, carpentry allows her to cover her living expenses and to have a better quality of life. She will use this loan to buy wood to work with, and to resell to artisans and others.

This loan is special because:

It reaches low-income populations by not requiring collateral or co-signers.
