A loan of $250 helped to buy clay, paint brushes, paint, etc. for her business.

Hilda Maribel's story

Ms. Hilda is 41 years old, single, and lives with her 15-year-old daughter. For the past ten years, she has dedicated her time to the creation and sale of pottery. Her clients are all of the people that pass through the street Calle Internacional to El Salvador. She also has clients who buy her products in bulk and resell them in the interior of the country.

Ms. Hilda is very content with the support of the loans, as this is her second loan with Prisma. She is applying for this loan in order to buy clay, paint brushes, paint, etc., which are the primary materials for making pottery. With the earnings she makes and the support of this loan, she hopes to maintain her family and continue increasing her profits.

Her dream is for her daughter to graduate from college.
