Bibiana Andrea's story

Bibiana is a great entrepreneur who saw in her ability to make crafts a business opportunity to contribute economically to her home. Bibiana is married and has a 12 year old son who is her motivation to work hard in her business.

About two years ago, Bibiana started making wood items at home that she’d sell to her friends. Seeing that her items were warmly received by them she decided to start producing them in larger amounts and to sell them to more people to generate income. This is how she then moved into a friend’s carpentry shop where he let her us a small space there to make her items and this is how she gradually grew to have good business sales. Currently, Bibiana has a business where she can sell enough to contribute economically to her home’s expenses and to provide a better quality of life for her son. Now, Bibiana plans to move production to her yard at home so is looking for a loan to buy work tools to make her products.

In this way Bibiana will have her own work tools to manufacture her products and will be able to do so in the comfort of her own home while caring for her son. In addition, she will continue to grow this way and in future be able to have a great business that will give her the opportunity of providing her family with a better quality of life and better opportunities for making progress.
