Señora Eva collects remnants of fabric and sells them to people who cut them up and reclaim the synthetic cotton to produce mattresses. She carries out this activity with her sisters, but they work for different people who make clothes and buy leftover fabrics. Eva is an elementary school teacher. Collecting fabrics is an additional source of income to her. Currently she applies for this loan to buy remnants of fabric and increase her working capital, because right now there is a high demand for mattresses, and Eva can sell large quantities of fabrics to the producers of mattresses and pillows. She is very young and eager to succeed. She is happy and grateful for the service provided by her microfinance institution.
