A loan of $650 helped to buy cement, sand and cinder blocks.

Estrella Karina's story

Estrella, 21, lives in Libertad, Ecuador. She was given the opportunity to work in what she likes best and she chose crafts. With effort she managed to embrace this work to support herself. She works Thursday to Sunday from 8am until nighttime. Her difficulty is her daughter’s illness so she works very hard. In futures she’d like to provide a stable life for her daughters. She will use the loan to buy raw materials (cement, sand and cinder blocks) to improve her house and have the opportunity to build her locale.
