Karla Estebana's story

Karla is a hardworking woman, who has had several businesses. She closed her grocery store to open the crafts business she currently runs. The business is growing as she purchases more products and raw materials to make bags. The bags are used to sow plants, and they are sold in the neighboring country of Costa Rica. Karla’s sister lives in Costa Rica, and she is in charge of selling the bags wholesale and receiving the money.

Karla’s loans have been used in her craft business, and Afodenic collaborated in its growth. Karla’s husband is a driver and she has six children. Five of them are married, and the youngest is still in school and financially dependent. With this new loan, Karla plans to purchase decorations, clay pots, and sacks to make more bags. She wants to continue her sales and get better financial results.
