A loan of $1,250 helped to purchase foam, paint and molds.


Isabel Beronica's story

Isabel has a business making crafts and foam art. She has always liked hands-on work, a trend that has led her to sell crafts for birthday parties and surprises. She is a single mother, and provides her family's only source of income. She works from 7:00 am until 11:00 pm, Monday through Saturday. Her sales are typically down in winter, since streets are less navigable due to bad weather, and less people are out and about.

She has two children, ages 7 and 11, both of whom are in school. She is requesting this loan in order to purchase materials for making her crafts, including foam, paint and molds. One of her goals is to convert an empty space she has in her house into a larger workshop for her business.
