A loan of $575 helped to buy materials, such as thread, to fill some orders she has from her customers..


Beatriz Elena's story

Beatriz learned to knit when she was in school and thanks to all her experience is now able to operate her own workshop in her home with which she earns the income she needs to support her home. Her biggest challenge is that she is a single mother and head of the household, as the father of her children abandoned her some time ago. Given the difficulty of accessing startup capital, Beatriz has had to take out a loan to buy materials, such as thread, to fill some orders she has from her customers. Her dream is to advance this business and go on earning the income she needs for her home so that her children can have a higher quality of life.
