Benita
Señora Benita is a hard working 67 year old woman who has worked as a seamstress for more than 15 years. She became a widow a year ago, which is why she had to invest more time into her business. Before her husband died she saw the business as a hobby and an extra income. Now, she has the small pension her husband left her, which is just enough for food and some household bills.

She is asking for this loan so that she can buy cloth and materials to use in her business sewing clothes and sweaters. As winter is here, she will be able to increase her sales and income, and her customers will be satisfied with the variety of clothes.
