A loan of $925 helped to buy wood, paint brushes, paint and other items to create artisan crafts.


Maibol's story

Maibol is a young visionary and entrepreneur. Her project consists of creating artisan products (souvenirs) and selling them to both national and international tourists who visit her town. Her principal objective is to share her region's culture, as well as to generate income for her family and to contribute to the daily expenses of running a home.

Maibol needs to buy raw materials (fine woods) to make her products. She will also need to buy other materials, such as lacquer, paintbrushes, paint, etc. In order to carry out this project, she would need four hundred and fifty thousand colones (450000 CRC).

She is very grateful for the opportunity to easily receive financing such as a communal loan.
