Ignacia's story

Ignacia is 70 years old, single and has 2 children. She lives alone and works to support herself. For the past 27 years she has dedicated herself to selling scapulars. She learned this trade when she was young after having an accident in which she injured her knee. At first is was a hobby, but later she realized that their was a market in the area for her work, which led her to start her business. The loan will be used to purchase materials to make scapulars such as: fabric, yarn, plastic and tape that she buys for the whole year. Ignacia's goal is to continue working and not have to depend on anyone.
