A loan of $400 helped to purchase thread, stones, and lockets to make necklaces.


Sandra Isabel's story

Sandra lives with her husband and two children, who are five and two years old. She sells imitation jewelry, and offers a workshop on how to make necklaces, bracelets, and accessories. She learned her trade by taking classes, and then decided to start her own business. She works from 9:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. from Monday to Friday.
She is requesting a loan to invest by purchasing materials to make jewelry, like thread, stones, and lockets, which she will use to make more merchandise to offer her customers. Sandra’s hope is to grow in the market by opening a new business in another spot in the market, and also to be able to have her own house.
