Florinda Juana's story

Florinda Juana is 60 years old. She didn't have the chance to go to school. She has 4 children who support her financially, since she is a widow. She makes tradional aprons for different ages. She started this job thanks to support from her family and has 25 years experience. This is the only way she has supported herself and her family.

She is asking for a loan that she will use to buy traditional fabrics with different designs and colors. She will also buy threads and notions to produce more aprons and have more earnings. She hopes that in the future she can leave her business to one of her daughters she she can continue to do this work that has been so beneficial for her.
