Rita
View original language description ↓
Rita is a widow with three three children. When she became a widow, she found herself needing to bring up her children and keep her household, which is why she began her sewing business. She now has eighteen years of experience with the business; her first clients were her family and neighbors from her area, but then thanks to her fine sewing, she was recommended by friends to various clients, and she now sews school uniforms and elaborate dresses, as well as mending and repairing clothing. With her business, she has been able to help her children get ahead, and she wishes to continue with the business.



Rita is asking for a US $250 loan to buy quality material for her business, such as cloth, thread, and the upkeep of her sewing machine to make her products, and she is offering to pay off the loan in three months. She and her family thank you for the support that you give her to continue her business.
