A loan of $725 helped to buy supplies to make crafts.

Angela's story

Ángela lives in the fourth ring zone. She has three children attending elementary and secondary school. She makes purses, hammocks, belts, tote bags, necklaces, mobile phone cases and hoop earrings she sells to crafts shops. She has many orders from abroad like from Spain. She makes everything they ask for.

On weekends she goes out looking for the seeds she uses for the necklaces as well as other materials she uses. In addition, she also teaches weaving and crafts making. She teaches weaving, dyeing, necklace and earring making to women in her community. She is a very proactive person besides being very well known in the zone.

This is her third loan with the institution where she’s shown good payment behavior. The loan she’s requesting is to buy materials used to make the crafts so that she can increase working capital. Ángela is a very hardworking person and she is happy and grateful to the institution for the support provided.
