A loan of $375 helped to buy fabric wholesale in order to make wallets and dolls.


Filomena Gladys's story

Filomena is 59 years old and married. She has an 18 year old son who is studying at the university. She makes a variety of clothes. For several years she has been making wallets and dolls from fabric in her workshop. Her workshop is in her home, which is in the Mario Mercado area.

This loan is her first cycle with the institution. Filomena will use this loan to buy fabric to make clothes. She has wholesale orders to deliver to a very well-known institution that sells educational and learning artisan toys. Her reason for requesting this loan is to increase investment capital.

Filomena faces the challenge in her business of increasing her income. She will use the profits to buy materials for making her dolls. This way she will have more customer orders.

Filomena is a very hard-working person. She is happy and grateful to the institution for the support given. This allows her to improve her income.
