Irene's story

Irene, 47, is married and has six children who are 25, 23, 21, 18, 13 and 10 years of age. She’s a craftswoman; she makes little sedge baskets at home located in the community of Palcoco on the way to Condoriri. It’s very painstaking work because it must all be done by hand. This loan is her first sequence in the institution and Irene will use the loan to buy sedge to make the little baskets since demand for her crafts is high. The business challenge Irene faces is generating higher income and she will use profits to continue improving production.
