Alejandrina's story

Alejandrina, 53, has been married to Cornelio for over 30 years; they have two children together, both now adults.

This lady is very enterprising. She weaves blankets and artisanal tablecloths. Her husband takes care of selling them in Villarrica where he goes monthly to sell the products and to collect payment for them. Thanks to her work and effort she was able to provide her children with comfort and at the same time see that they got an education. She comments that now all her work’s purpose is that she has a proper old age that’s free of want.

She’s asking for the loan to buy colored thread to weave blankets that are in season and being much requested by her customers. She thanks the Fundación for the opportunity it gives her to continue growing.
