Maria Nicolasa's story

María Nicolasa, 45, is married and has six children in school. She didn't have the opportunity to study.

She makes a living weaving traditional skirts. She started this business thanks to the support of her father, who took her to a business to work and learn this job. She currently has six years of experience. She has the support of her husband, who does the same work.

She's requesting a loan to buy materials, specifically different colors and types of thread.

She hopes to continue improving her production and work with current designs. She hopes to have employees in the future and for her children to learn this work.
