Flos De Maria has requested a loan from World Vision to expand her business. She would like to buy cloth, special thread, different color sequin ribbons, paint, brushes, hooks, etc. This will help Flos De Maria make and sell more embroidered handcrafts which will increase her overall income.
Flos De Maria and her husband have 3 children, of whom 3 are currently studying in school. Flor has been creating handcrafts for 8 years. She makes painted and embroidered napkins, decorative accessories, table cloths, bathroom sets, purses, bags, woven bags, etc. She learnt to make all these pieces because she took a course that the government arranged for people in her municipality. But her education and update in the subject did not finish with the course, she buys specialized magazines and she also makes her experiments, she uses all her imagination in her work. She offers all the pieces to friends and acquaintances and sells in the Thursday marketplace of her community where she sets a table and starts selling. Flor buys all the material in haberdasheries and stores where she finds the best prices. She wants to thank VisionFund for the opportunity of getting a loan to increase her material and her sales. .
