A loan of $1,000 helped to buy raw materials (tokoro plant).


Prudencia's story

Prudencia is 49 years old and single, with no children. She works making and selling little baskets made by hand with a plant called "tokoro." These baskets are for vases in your house. They are in the Venancio area.

This loan is her first cycle with the institution and Prudencia is going to use it to buy raw materials (tokoro) to make baskets. The reason for requesting the loan is to expand her business.

Prudencia faces challenges in her business. The manual work is tedious and takes her time to make the baskets. Prudencia is very happy about and grateful for the opportunity they are giving her in the offer of a loan because this is her only activity to support herself.
