A loan of $425 helped to buy crafts-making supplies.


Maricela's story

Maricela is originally from the city of San Luis Potosí but her parents moved to the city of Nuevo Laredo when she was still a little girl to give her and her sisters a better life. Maricela works making crafts that are figures for parties like birthdays, baptisms, weddings and graduations. She’s requesting a loan to buy supplies because she has several pending orders to fill for Christmas figures but does not have enough supplies to finish on time and this is why she’s asking for the loan so she can buy everything she needs to finish and deliver on time so that her customers will be happy and will recommend her to others. Maricela lives with her father who is a senior citizen and needs care; she’s who takes care of him. She wants to improve her business and earn higher family income.
