A loan of $1,025 helped to buy material to make decorations.

Hilda Ofelia's story

Hilda, 30, earns a living making decorations by hand. She also uses cutting and sewing machines. Her job is decorative art. She has a store in the downtown area where she shows the variety of her products.

This is Hilda's first loan with the institution. She's going to use it to buy material to make her handicrafts because she has a job decorating for a social activity. She's requesting the loan so she has enough quality material to do the job.

The challenge Hilda faces is increasing her sales in the market. She'll use the profits to increase her income for the business.

Hilda wants to buy her own house. She's happy and feels grateful to the institution for the support, which allows her to grow in her business and improve her income and, as a result, her family's quality of life.
