View original language description ↓
Consuelo was retired, but she decided to start a business because she did not like being idle at home. Her husband´s income as a mechanic is also insufficient to pay for their home expenses. So she began making handicrafts, jewellry, and selling catalog goods. Slowly but surely she built up her client base.

Consuelo has to purchase more merchandise. On the photograph we see her with a picture in her hand and a small bracelet as this is the only way to display what she sells until she gets more stock. Consuelo needs a US $925 microloan to repay in 6 months. With this money she will purchase more merchandise to increase her sales. With your help Consuelo will be able to make her business flourish.
