A loan of $800 helped to buy thread, jewelry and thongs.

Maria Alejandra's story

María was born in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. She currently lives in the España neighborhood. For 5 years she has been embroidering thongs (flip flops). She has built up a customer base and to increase her income she also sells jewelry. In this way she helps with her household expenses. The loan which Mrs Alejandra has been given is for buying more thongs since her orders for embroidered thongs have increased with the end-of-year season. She is grateful to Emprender for the trust which they have placed in her.
