Benita's story

Benita is 47 years old and has been married to Ibarra for more than 19 years. She has two children, one 17 and one 5 years of age, and they are why she struggles every day.

She is an enterprising and hardworking woman. She works making and selling handicrafts such as blankets, tablecloths, and other items, while her husband has a little internal public transport and thus together they earn the daily bread. Thanks to her work and strength she could provide her children all the comforts and at the same time pay schooling fees, so that they can obtain a profession and become good people.

She is asking for a loan to buy thread and dyes in order to weave blankets that in this season are much requested by her clients because in the summer the cost is less and many people take advantage of the offers.
