A loan of $725 helped to buy yarn.


Marcela's story

Marcela is 37 years old and has three school-aged children. She knits alpaca sweaters and blankets for women and has a workshop in her home, located in the Puerto Camacho zone. This will be her first loan through the institution and Marcela will use it to buy alpaca yarn in quantity so she can knit her sweaters and blankets. She makes many sales now that it has gotten cold. She also delivers her products to the different markets in El Alto. She is asking for this loan so she can increase her working capital. Marcela has challenges in her business, such as assorting her merchandise and she will use the benefits to continue buying her sweater knitting supplies in bulk.
