A loan helped to buy a plot of land.


Manuela's story

Manuela is a 32 year old woman. She is single and lives with her parents and siblings in a community of the village of Santa Catarina Ixtahuacán. In order to earn her income and support her family, for three years she has worked making traditional embroidery. Manuela likes this activity because she makes it in her home and it allows her to work in other activities such as selling and cultivating bananas. Manuela is a mature woman already who thinks it is necessary to purchase a plot of land where she can cultivate and improve her income; although one of her problems is not having the needed money to buy the land. For this reason she is requesting a loan. Her biggest dream is to have her banana business grow, so that she can have better life conditions when she forms a family.
