A loan of $425 helped buying a new coverstitch sewing machine to increase production of her workshop.


Dora Helena's story

Dora is a dedicated and hardworking microentrepreneur. Her line of work is in tailoring, providing the service to third parties.

At 40 years old, she already has her own workshop. She works every day, thus generating enough resources to sustain the economic needs of the home.

The loan requested will be invested in buying a new coverstitch sewing machine to increase the production of her workshop, so that she can meet the requests of her customers and deliver the orders in a timely manner. This will allow her to increase production and gain new contracts, which will give continuity to her microenterprise.
