A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase alpaca wool to knit alpaca blankets.


Cristina's story

Cristina is 41 years old. She's married and has three children aged 17, 12 and 8. She lives in the community of Cachilaya dos Andes and she knits alpaca blankets. This is her first loan with the institution. Cristina will use the loan to purchase alpaca wool for her business, since she's got orders to meet. The reason she requests this loan is the lack of means. Cristina faces the challenge of making progress in her business. She will use the rewards to increase her working capital and therefore increase her profits.
