A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a plot of land.

Maria's story

María's main business activity is hand knitting blankets from Ardilla yarn. She does all her work by hand. She does good-quality work as she has orders to fill. She also sells weekly. María lives with her husband and has a four-year-old son. At the time of our visit, she was found knitting a blanket. This activity is her main source of income.

On this occasion, María is requesting a loan to buy a plot of land in San Roque district. Over time, she would like to build on the plot so that she can live comfortably in her own home. This is María's wish. She feels happy and grateful for the opportunity that she is being given.
