A loan of $575 helped to invest in buying handicrafts, woolen caps, shawls, etc.


Katherine Nina's story

Katherine continues in her business buying and selling handicrafts. She continues renting the same premises and is saving up to buy her own premises. She would like to invest in buying art, ceramics, 'chullos' (woolen caps with earflaps), blankets and shawls made from alpaca or sheep's wool. She is requesting this loan to invest in buying materials for making handicrafts as well as pre-made products.
