A loan of $1,375 helped to purchase supplies (wool, thread, needles).

Ana Elvia's story

63-year-old Ana makes a living by making handicrafts out of wool and thread. She started doing this more than 40 years ago as a pastime, and over time she turned it into a source of income to sustain her five children. Her work is widely recognised in her municipality due to the quality of her products. She is requesting a loan, which she will invest in purchasing supplies (wool, thread, needles). She hopes that with this investment she will be able to improve her quality of life.

One of her greatest goals is to make her clients aware of the work that goes into making her embroidery, since many of her clients want the products at very low prices.
