A loan of $200 helped to buy work material/comprar material de trabajo.

Martha Beatriz's story

Beatriz has dedicated herself to making candles for 10 years, a business that she learned from her parents as they taught her this skill. She has 3 young kids and her desire is to be able to bring them a better quality education. Making candles gives her a better income than she would have if she was working in an office, and it also allows her to be with her kids. With the growth that her product has had she can now also rent out her candles for events, and after the event she collects her ornaments and reuses them. She also gets the glass candle holders that they use at the town's church and reuses them for her arrangements.

She needs a loan of $200, which she will repay over a period of 3 months, to buy material and to be able to continue with her business.
