Amelia
Six years ago Amelia C., now age 50, was unemployed and single and supported by her two adult children. She decided she wanted to turn her life around and took a sewing class in order to start her own business making curtains and bedding. Amelia took out her first loan to buy a sewing machine and fabric to start her business.

Now, 6 years later, she is a shining example of how much a little opportunity can go. She frequently travels to surrounding towns to sell her well-crafted curtains and bedding which are in high demand. Now she is requesting a loan to buy another sewing machine so she can hire another employee and increase production to meet the high demand. Right now she makes all of her products from her house, but she has a dream of one day of having her own store with multiple employees helping her sew.

Amelia is now an independent woman and instead of depending on her children, she is able to provide for them. She has experienced a new sense of self-confidence and empowerment and she is excited to continue to grow her business. By supporting this loan, you can help Amelia come one step closer to achieving her dreams!
