A loan of $600 helped to buy nacazcol (a type of dye), clay, and firewood so she can make griddles and pots to sell.


Maria Ines's story

María continues working making griddles and pots. She is applying for a loan because she needs to buy more raw materials in order to continue making handicrafts and also she will buy firewood and supplies such as nacazcol (a type of dye) and clay. This loan will help so she can buy the necessary supplies in order to continue in her work, which her family depends on.

She is very happy and grateful for the opportunity of working that is offered by the loans, as this is the way she can improve some aspects of her housing. She has built a kiln with a roof to protect it from the rain. Her son has problems with one of his hands and receives therapy. She thinks that the loans are helping her get ahead.
