A loan of $900 helped to buy yarn.


Blanca Elena's story

Blanca is 37 years old and lives with her three children in Ibarra. She considers herself to be a hard-working and responsible person.

Blanca works with her daughters making woolen jackets. This is the first time that she has requested a loan from Fodemi. She needs to buy raw materials such as yarn in order to make her jackets. This will help her to increase her production, improve her sales and provide her children with an education.

Blanca's dream is to be able to have her own business premises and to employ people who need work as her daughters have to study.
