Meet 33-year-old Sarah from Waterloo. She is married with one child who is 10 years old. Her child is currently attending school.

In 2000, Sarah established her clothing business. She began her business when she graduated from her vocational training center. She usually prepares the local fabric and takes it to a tailor for the product to be finished. She works at the business 10 hours per day, 7 days per week. She says the high cost of rental is the main problem she faces.

Sarah requires a loan in order to buy a sewing machine. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and start a savings account. In the future, Sarah plans to employ staff to sew her products. She thanks you for your support.
