A loan of $825 helped to buy bricks in bulk.


Ignacia's story

Ignacia is 60 years old, and is a widow with four grown children. She makes a living selling construction materials, such as gravel, sand and bricks. She sells her products in the Esquilan Chico zone, and is requesting her first loan in order to purchase bricks in bulk for resale to customers before an expected price increase in the upcoming season. Her lack of capital to make the purchase on her own has led her to request this loan.

Ignacia faces challenges in running her business, including lots of competition, and she plans to use the support from this loan to invest in her business. Her goal for her business is to increase her customer base and generate more income so that she can provide for her children, since this is her only source of income.
