Leonida's story

Leonida L. is 54 years old, married, and lives in her own house in the city of Carapeguá. She has four children who are all adults.


She began to help her mother make artisanal bedspreads from an early age and learned the trade from her. She also buys general clothing to sell.


She now brings her products to the country’s capital area to sell with the help of her husband. Thanks to this job, she was able to build a decent house and take good care of her children. She is requesting the loan for the purchase of bedspreads, sheets and hammocks, in addition to fabrics for artisanal jobs.
