A loan of $600 helped to buy wood in bulk.


Teresa's story

Teresa, who is 18, makes wooden baskets and then travels around the various fairs and markets in the city of Santa Cruz to sell them. She also sells them from a number of outlets. This is Teresa's first loan cycle with the institution and she plans to use the loan to make baskets. Teresa's work brings it challenges - it is manual work and is tedious and tough. Teresa is happy and grateful to the institution for granting her the loan and for the help it has provided.
