Paula Andrea's story

Paula is noted for having very good sales skills and she is always looking to grow her business. For approximately six years, she has been making leather goods such as billfolds, bags, purses, etc. Thanks to this work, she makes the income she needs for her household. As she produces good-quality products and offers good customer service, Paula has been able to attract very good customers and made very good sales. Some of her customers have already allowed her to export her products to other countries and this has made her very good income. Paula would like to take part in a craft fair where she will be able to exhibit her products to a large number of people. She hopes to receive a loan that will allow her to buy raw materials such as leather, paints, etc. so that she can make a large quantity of products to exhibit in this craft fair.

Paula hopes that if she displays a large number of products, she will be able to attract a good number of customers and so continue increasing her income and growing her business. She also hopes to create jobs for people who need them and continue improving the quality of life of other people who need to make income.
