Maria Reyna
María, 39, is single with two children who are 16 and 18 years of age and attending school. She works making artisanal dolls and has a fixed stand where she sells them; she also distributes them based on prior orders. This loan is her first sequence in the institution and María will use the loan to buy supplies like fabric, yarn, thread and silicone to make dolls because demand at the end of the year is much higher from institutions that place orders with her. Her reason for requesting the loan is the increase in customer orders and lack of capital to buy supplies at wholesale. María will use profits to buy supplies to increase doll production and thus her capital. Her wish is to have a micro business and hire staff.
