A loan of $500 helped to buy bedspreads, sheets and hammocks.

Blanca's story

Mrs Blanca S. is 36 years old and has been married to Mr Aníbal Gómez for more than 13 years. She lives in her own home in the town of Carapeguá. She and her husband have 2 school-age children.

When she was a young girl, Blanca started helping her mother to make hand-made bedspreads. She learned the trade from her mother. She also buys general bed linen to re-sell. These days she takes her products to sell in the capital city with the help of her husband. Thanks to this work she has managed to build a modest house and look after her children.

She is requesting this loan to buy bedspreads, sheets and hammocks.
