Banco Mujer Emprend. De Chilamate Group's story

Daniela is a 31-year-old woman. She has two children and lives with her husband in Chilamate de Poas. She is an entrepreneurial woman who likes handicrafts and is very skilled in this area. Daniela has received various classes of different techniques for making and painting these crafts. With the aim of generating more income for her family, she developed her own business selling her handicrafts made from recycled material. Besides generate income, this activity also helps take care of the environment, promotes recycling, and sets an example for Daniela's children. To Daniela is it very important to preserve the environment and ensure that future generations can enjoy it too. This is a lifestyle she hopes to teach her children through her own example.

With this loan, Daniela will buy some basic supplies and materials in order to make handicrafts. She hopes to have a bigger quantity of items to offer her customers. Furthermore, Daniela has the opportunity to develop her business since her mother, who lives in the center of Alajuela, wants to sell her products. Daniela also already has orders from her neighbors and friends. For this reason, Daniela will sell her merchandise not only to her neighbors and friends from Chilamate, but also in Alajuela center through her mother.
