A loan of $800 helped to buy a variety of fabrics and glass vases.


Maria Elena's story

María is Sacabeña, meaning she was born in Sacaba Cochabamba. She is very well known in the area for the work that she does, which is decorating altars for weddings, 15th birthday celebrations, and religious festivals. She is much sought-after because of her punctuality, responsibility, and the quality of her work. She will use the loan to buy a variety of cloths and glass vases for table centerpieces. Her goal is to have a range of different colored decorative fabrics to offer to the people who request her services. She is very grateful to the institution for the support offered to her.
