Ingrids Patricia
Ingrids is 40 years old, married, and has three children, a 15 year old daughter who is in 8th grade and two sons, a 10 year old who is in 3rd grade and a 2 ½ year old. They live in a house they own.

She learned how to sew at school. It was her preferred trade and she learned when she was recently married so that she could help her husband with the household expenses. She works making school uniforms, suits for office workers, and dresses for weddings and quinceañeras.

Her husband learned to make men's clothing (pants and shirts) from an uncle at 14 years old, but he had to stop when he had the opportunity for a job. Later, due to a bad situation at work, he stopped working and restarted his business making men's clothing.

Ingrids is requesting this loan from Fundación Campo to purchase three overlock sewing machines and to use as working capital. She needs to hire three workers to meet demand. She has a contract to make 2298 uniforms for two schools. The ministry of education will pay when she finishes and they do not advance payment.

Her dream is to expand her sewing business and rent a large space to work since she has high demand.
