A loan of $300 helped to buy fabric and thread.

Maria Cecilia's story

María, 48, lives in the town of Choloma. She’s in a common law relationship with her spouse, Marco, and they have a 12-year-old son who attends school. Marco works in the business with María to cover family expenses.

María specializes in making and selling ‘cameras’ (bedspreads), drapes and furniture slipcovers. María has a second business making tamales to sell around the neighborhood. She started her businesses five years ago investing her severance pay from a previous job into them. She does not have much competition in the zone so she’s done well in her businesses. She requested this L5500 loan to buy fabric and thread to make the ‘cameras.’
