A loan of $825 helped to purchase materials and a manual polisher to make footwear.

Andrea Estefanía's story

Andrea, 20, is head of the household and mother of a three month old. Because her spouse decided to leave and not take responsibility for his obligations as a father, Andrea had to look for alternatives for income to support her child. Andrea is living with her mother who is currently paying for the household expenses.

A year ago Andrea learned to make footwear, thus she decided to begin with this activity. Today she is asking for a loan that she will invest in the purchase of materials and a manual polisher with the purpose of improving the quality of the production. Her greater dream is to offer her child better living conditions and to move away from all financial shortfalls.
