A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a machine to make her handicrafts.

Luisa Fernanda's story

Luisa is a 20 year old young woman. She loves decoration, and she has a great talent for art. Ever since she was old enough, she has worked. This is because she needs to contribute to the household obligations and pay for her university studies.

Six months ago she was left without employment. Thanks to a friend’s idea, she started taking advantage of her great talent to work with handicrafts. She is now extremely happy for the opportunity life gave her to be a small businesswoman.

She is looking for a loan to buy a machine she needs to make her product. Her biggest dream is to be able to graduate from the university and to offer her family a better quality of life.
