A loan of $400 helped to buy thread to make fabric.


Petronila's story

18-year old Sra. Petronila is single. She didn't have the chance to go to school. She is a weaver, having learned this skill with help from her older sister. Petronila now has five years of experience as a weaver. Her parents help support her.

She is seeking a loan to buy different types of thread and silk since she wishes to make silk cloth and offer new designs to her customers. She hopes to have her own working capital and to be able to increase it.
