Financing that matters: the power of microfinancing

Mexican Carmen’s fingers weave tirelessly. With her loan, she bought the necessary ribbons to craft colorful baskets. The sale of these baskets is her family’s only source of income. Access to financing is crucial for entrepreneurs in developing countries. It not only boosts their earnings and contributes to stability and economic growth within their communities.
