A loan of $1,000 helped paint brushes and tools.

Juana Margarita's story

Juana, 53, is a hard working woman who is very dedicated to what she enjoys. She started making paintings after having taken an art course.

She decided to turn the paintings into a business to earn her own money doing what she liked to do. She currently works from 8am until 5pm. She sells the paintings for $25.00, table centerpieces for $12.00 and flower vases for $20.00. She has many hopes for the business because she does what she enjoys doing and makes money at it.

Because of this she wants to stay in business to continue working and help her husband with household expenses. She will use the loan to buy paint brushes and tools for her paintings and manual arts. One of her goals it to have a gallery for her paintings.
