Dora Piedad's story

Dora, 51 years old, is the mother of three children and lives with her husband. For 18 years, she has been making decorative artisan items for the home, something she learned from her sister and with which she has been able to generate income to help her children succeed. Dora is a sensible woman; she is dedicated to her family and to her work. She is requesting this loan to help purchase supplies (threads, fabric, synthetic cotton) in order to be able to have basic material on hand and be able to offer her customers better product variety to satisfy their diverse tastes. In this way, she will have the possibility of filling orders sooner and will improve her revenue from sales. Dora dreams of being known for her work and attracting new customers from whom she will be able to obtain more revenue in order to continue supporting her household and to improve the living conditions for her whole family.
