A loan helped to purchase thread cones to twist and sell for her customers to make hammocks.


Ivania Briseida's story

Ivania is 21 years old, is in a relationship. Her partner is a day laborer and she has one young daughter.

Ivania makes a living twisting threads that are needed to make and sell hammocks. She learned because this is traditional work in her family.

She needs a loan to purchase thread cones to twist and sell to her clients who make hammocks.

Ivania dreams of having more tools to complete her work and of improving the floor in her home.
