Angela's story

Ángela lives in the Fourth Ring zone. She has three children going to elementary and secondary schools. She makes purses, hammocks, belts, wallets, necklaces and cell phone sheaths and hoop earrings that she sells to crafts stores. She has many orders from abroad, like from Spain, and she makes everything she’s asked for. On weekends she goes out to look for the seeds she uses in the necklaces as well as feathers she might need. In addition, she teaches weaving and crafts making. She teaches women in the community to weave and dye and also to make necklaces and earrings. She is a very proactive person and quite well known in the area. This is her third loan with the institution where she’s exhibited good payment behavior. The loan she’s requesting is to buy supplies and to increase her working capital.
