Graciela Maria's story

Graciela is the single mother of two children and head of her household. She sells clothing and makes handicrafts to generate enough income to support her family. Since the end of the year is approaching, it is time to start making Christmas dolls to sell, which will increase her income and improve her family´s financial situation. Her greatest business challenge is insufficient working capital to buy materials to fill her customer orders. She also has health issues that keep her from leaving her home to sell her merchandise.

Graciela is applying for a loan to buy supplies to make Christmas dolls and clothing to fill her customers´ orders. She dreams of establishing her business in a place where she could increase her sales and income so that her children could have access to a good education.
