A loan of $575 helped to purchase different colored yarns.

Faustina's story

This member is 40 years old and has five children aged 23, 19, 15, 12 and 6. She currently works selling handicrafts (textiles) in the main square in her village. She buys materials such as different colored yarns which have already been dyed with natural oxides and she spins them to make textiles in different designs. She needs this loan to buy different colored yarns. She will invest her loan in buying yarn. The member would like to set up a gallery in which to sell handicrafts or textiles which have been hand-made from alpaca yarn.
