A loan of $650 helped to get training in business creation and design.

María Patricia's story

Patricia, age 52, is separated and has two daughters. She has educated her daughters with hard work and sacrifice, since her partner has not taken responsibility for his children.
Patricia worked for several years in different businesses in the commercial sector, but she is now unemployed due to a scaling back of personnel. One of her daughters has supported her economically for several years, but because of the instability of her work she has not been able to cover her household costs. For this reason, Patricia has decided to take out a loan in order to get training in business creation and design in order to open her own business and generate her own income.
Her greatest desire is to improve her quality of life and become a business woman.
