Ramona's story

Ramona is 48 years old and has been married for 18 years to Mr. Victoriano. She has grown children who are independent. Most of them are living in the capital city.
For the past 20 years Mrs. Ramona has been sewing bedspreads and folk craft tablecloths. She sells them herself in the capital city. She has to bring her products to the city in order to sell them there. She travels to the city once a month. It is a profitable business, as she gets a good price for her products. Thanks to her hard work and effort she is able to afford some comforts and also could build her own home.
She is asking for this loan in order to buy thread and dye in order to sew hammocks. Her customers are requesting this item in this season.
She is grateful to the foundation and to KIVA for the opportunities that they provide.
