Merling Johana's story

Merling, age 47, is married to an administrator. She is described as an enterprising merchant, hardworking and responsible. For six years, she has had a craft business. She began making plates, and today the business has grown, to making all types of crafts for special events. She is the pillar of her family, as a person who reaches her goals.

In hopes of getting ahead with her craft business, she decided to request a loan from Micrédito and Kiva to buy paper, chiffon, floral arrangements, foam, glue, and scissors. Her husband helps to strengthen the business day by day. In the not-distant future she wishes to have a store where she could offer costume jewelry, crafts, and decorations.
