Maritzabel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to expand and improve her sewing shop, in this way to have more income for her family.
Maritzabel is from the municipality of San Pablo de Huacareta where she currently lives. She is 24 years old, she completed her primary and secondary education in Huacareta, and her parents are from the same place. She comes from a humble family and worked from the time she was very young, first helping her parents. With a lot of effort, she completed courses in CEA CETEP, with a specialization in sewing, so she needs the loan to expand and improve her sewing shop, purchasing sewing machines and also raw materials, such as fabric, to offer better and broader services so to also attract more customers to generate more income to help support her little family since her partner works as an employee and his income is very low. In Huacareta, there is not a lot of competition, so Maritzabel will have more possibilities to generate good income with the sewing business.
