A loan of $650 helped to buy thread, clasps, decorations, etc.


Violeta Del Carmen's story

Violeta, 63, is divorced; she has three adult children who are independent now. She started out making purses and wallets as a crafts hobby but it grew into a business. She currently makes coin purses, purses and suitcases that she sells in various parts of the city. She will use the loan to buy tread, clasps, decorations, etc. Her goal is to have a locale of her own to sell her wares in so she won’t have to go out in to the streets to sell any more.
