Ariana's story

Ariana designs clothing and logos and wishes to borrow C 150000. Ariana lives in Barrio 20 de Noviembre in Puntarenas, a low-income area with social issues. She is 20 and lives with her siblings and mother, who has a business and has worked with groups in Puntarenas. Ariana designs clothing and brand logos, as well as dresses, underwear, and more. This enterprising young woman wants to have her own business, place her merchandise in the market, and continue her education, while improving her circumstances and helping her family financially.

She will use this loan to buy materials to make sample designs that she can start selling in Puntarenas. She has more than two years of experience in this profession, but financial issues make it necessary for people like her to seek support from institutions such as Fundación Mujer for seasonal needs. In this case, Araina wants to get started with her idea and improve her work skills through technical school training.

An important goal is to get ahead so that she and her family will have a brighter future and she can keep studying and growing her business each day. Until now, her greatest obstacle has been funding, but she found support for her micro business through this program.
