Adriana's story

Adriana is known for her drive, energy and dedication to family. She is passionate about crafts. For over 12 years she has been running a shop selling women's clothing and accessories. It is located on the main street of the town where she lives and she works every day with a part-time employee. She sells handbags, necklaces, earrings, shoes and clothing. She makes some of the products herself and buys other semi-finished items which she sends off to artisans in the area. She has been able to make enough income to help her husband cover household expenses and provide for their two children.

Her goal is to strengthen her business through the loan. She will use it to buy wholesale supplies and finished products (chains, beads, brooches, blouses, jackets, handbags, etc.). This will allow her to continue her work and offer a variety of products to satisfy her customers. It will also improve her profit margin.

Adriana, 46, has plans to open more shops in the area and in neighboring towns in order to increase her profitability and give her family a better quality of life.
