Zaida's story

Zaida has been a client of Fundación Mujer for several years, during which time she has gotten loans with the goal of having a flow of working capital. She makes bedspreads, curtains, and cushions that her customers buy to decorate their homes. Zaida also sells some other catalogue products. She herself always says that what she sells, they buy from her, because she has a very pleasant way of serving her customers.

Zaida lives only with her husband, with whom she has lived for 40 years. All her children are adults. Nevertheless, Zaida always has contributed to the family finances since her children were little. Now she is helping one of her daughters finish her university studies, and also helps take care of her granddaughter.
