Sofia Jiatz Morales sees the need to request a new loan for her small business. She has had a business making shirts for a number of years. She doesn't have enough fabric to fill all of her customer's orders, and she also realized that she needs more colors of fabric. She buys fabric by the bolt, and it costs 700 Guatemalan quetzales. Her husband supports her in everything she does, and the two of them have managed to get ahead and pull themselves up after the trouble they had a number of years ago due to her husband's drinking. Sofia is very grateful for your support, and she greatly blesses you wherever you are.
