Mariela's story

At the age of 61, Mariela is quite the fighter because when she separated from her husband she was forced to start her own business with one of her children. Together they started to repair shoes and purses and to manufacture sandals.

Mariela and her son work in Medellín’s Comuna 13 neighborhood where their house is located. At present, this entrepreneur needs a loan to buy supplies and raw materials to continue with her work.
