A loan of $800 helped to buy baskets to sell.

Maria's story

María is from the city of Luque. She is a recurring client of the foundation, since by means of the help we give her she has been able to grow and expand her sales market. She is married and lives with her husband and four children.

María has been working in crafts for more than 10 years. She makes hats and baskets by hand and sells them in the neighborhoods and at the patron saint day festivals in each city. She comments that currently she has many orders because the holiday season is coming and she has requests for Christmas baskets.

She is requesting the loan to buy prefabricated baskets to be able to fill the orders she has received.

The loan will give her business a better profit margin, which will help her to improve the standard of living for herself and her children, since she has four children, all of whom are students and also help their mother in her work.
