Diana Marcela's story

Diana is a 28 year old young woman and the mother of two children. She has been making and repairing shoes for the past 10 years. She learned this through a family tradition which allows her to generate an income with which to support her household. With her small workshop, located in her home, this woman works daily to find better alternatives for her life. She is asking for this loan so she can buy supplies (buckles, soles, heels, leatherette) to complete a production run which is on hold due to a shortage of working capital.

She hopes to increase her income and buy a house in order to improve her family’s quality of life.
