A loan helped to buy silk and polyester threads, in addition to other accessories, to increase her production of hammocks.


Marina Aridahi's story

Marian is applying for a new loan because she doesn't have working capital available. [She needs to] strengthen her business of making and selling hammocks. With the borrowed funds, she will buy silk and polyester threads, in addition to other accessories. This way, she will increase her production of hammocks.

She explains that with the previous investment, she was able to reactivate her business, which was affected by the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic. Her economic situation has improved for the moment.

Maria has the same family group.

This loan is special because:

It gives El Salvador's artists a chance to revive the local art of handcrafting.
