Marcela's story

For 15 years, the streets Solola and other cities are blessed by the footsteps of Marcela, She is single, 60 years old, and has two children already married and the third, the youngest, living with her.

She is dedicated to making and selling typical scarves made ​​with a loom. This is a craft she learned working for other people. Now it is her own business. In addition, she makes a variety of typical products.

One of her personal goals is to have a variety of materials and products to meet the needs of the public to whom she sells and clients she has.

This is the reason that motivates Marcela to seek a loan for the purchase of raw material and yarn for the loom. It allows her to continue producing scarves and other typical local products.
