A loan of $1,025 helped to buy silk and nylon thread for making hammocks.


Maria Martir's story

María is 49 years old and lives with her children. She is a widow and has been producing hammocks for 34 years. This line of work has been in her family for generations and she manages her business with her children. Her financial difficulty has kept her from meeting the demands of her customers.

For this reason, María is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of raw materials, such as silk thread in various colors and nylon thread, which are necessary for making hammocks. This loan will help boost her business since she already has customers who have placed large orders. With the help of this loan issued by PADECOMSM, she will be able to meet the needs of her customers.

Her dream is to remodel and furnish her home so that she can have a specific place for making hammocks and growing her business.
