Cecilia Magdalena's story

Cecilia Magdalena is married and 39 years old. She never had the opportunity to study, but she has three children who are currently in school. She works as a weaver of traditional skirts. She began this work with one of her sisters, and she now has 2 years of experience. She has the support of her husband, who supports her economically.

She is asking for a loan, which she will use to buy thread to weave traditional skirts, and she hopes to have a large business with her own money invested to make her living.
