A loan of $350 helped to buy silk thread for making hammocks.


Ruth Elisa's story

Ruth makes hammocks and this is the second loan she has requested for this business. She lives in Delicias de Concepción with her husband and two children, aged 11 and 4. She is 30 years old and has been running this business for five years.
She would like the support of another loan to buy silk thread in different colours, as this is the primary material required for making hammocks. It would help her increase her stock of materials and meet the demands of her customers.
Her aim is to have a stable business that generates income so that her children can study and become professionals in the future, and she can also improve her home.
