A loan helped to purchase more raw materials for handicraft items.


Taina's story

Taina is a talented jeweler and basket weaver who makes bracelets, necklaces, earrings and baskets for international tourists and locals. With high demand for her handicrafts, she is seeking financial assistance to purchase more raw materials to make these items. She wishes to expand her business further and have a table at her local handicraft centre.

The loan will provide funds to buy raw materials so that she can make more jewellery and baskets. She will use the increased profits to provide for her family’s needs.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
