Ines Albertina
Ines is 46 years old and lives with her husband in her own home in San Lorenzo, a valley town in southern Honduras. She creates and sells clay ornaments and has an established clientele that only have to call her to initiate the fulfillment of their orders on time and in the expected form.

Ines is requesting a loan to purchase more primary materials such as clay, paints, small paint brushes, and ornament molds, since she already has several orders and needs to have all these materials to create her artisan crafts and make these sales.

Ines is very content working with Prisma, since with her past loans, she has been able to get ahead. Her dream is to set up her own pottery shop.
