Palmira, 36, is a single mother and lives in the city of Carapeguá. She is the daughter of a well-known craftswoman in the area and has worked with her mother in the business since she was a child. With her help she has set up her own business selling bedcovers and hammocks.

She currently has a customer base in the area and the orders she receives for her merchandise is constantly increasing. Thanks to her hard-work and dedication she has been able to build herself a little house.

She is asking for this loan to buy thread, dye and other products that her customers are requesting this season.
