A loan of $650 helped to buy raw materials for her textile weaving.


Alberta's story

Alberta is a very well known person who has a stand in the market selling snacks. She’s also a very well known weaver in town because she makes very pretty güipiles (traditional Guatemalan skirts) that people seek out. Because of this, she’s asking for another loan to invest in the purchase of raw materials to continue making güipiles. She promises to be punctual with each installment. In addition, she’d be very grateful if another loan were granted because her oldest daughter is about to graduate and Alberta has to work harder to make her dream come true.
