Artesanas De Beni Loma Group's story

This group is called "Artesanas de Beni Loma." They are in the program for the elimination of poverty, with the purpose of being able to offer better living conditions to their families and continue overcoming their situation of poverty.

Maria Emilia is one of the members. She is a very hard-working person who makes and sells handicrafts. In addition to this, she sells fast food on weekends, since she has a stand in her house. She does everything to be able to offer her loved ones a better quality of life, without experiencing privation. Her goal is to be able to continue with her work and in this way continue helping to support her loved ones.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of materials for making her handicrafts and also basic ingredients for making her food to sell.
