Maria Magdalena's story

Maria Magdalena is married. She is 37 years old and didn't have the opportunity to go to school. She has four children, two of them in school. She works making wide woven bands of material, which are worn around the waist. She got started in this line of work with the support of a relative, and has ten years of experience so far.

She is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase different color threads so that she can weave more bands and generate more income. In the future she hopes to have a large business.
