A loan helped to buy wool, lace, buttons, thread, knitting needles, and pins.


Martha Cecilia's story

Cecilia, who is 55, is happily married and lives in company with her husband in a little house that they managed to build through great effort. Their children are already grown and have their own families.

In order to help her husband Cecilia has been doing knitting, which does not yield abundant income, but sufficient to cover the basic daily necessities of the household. Cecilia has become known in the area for her excellent finishing touches and that's why she has quite a few orders. However, she does not have sufficient resources to buy the necessary wool, lace, buttons, thread, knitting needles, and pins; that's why she has applied to the organization for a loan, with which she hopes to be able to make the purchases to complete all of her orders.
