Helene's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to fix the ceiling of her workshop and to pay for new cloth.

Helene's story

Helene began sewing her own curtains 20 years ago. When her neighbors and ‎friends saw the beauty of them, they asked her to sew for them as well. Her ‎husband and her parents encouraged her to begin selling her curtains and ‎drapes and thus her business began. At first she worked from home, but as ‎the demand grew she opened her workshop and store in the center of her ‎town. Helene is known for the beauty and quality of her curtains and drapes ‎and customers come from all over to purchase from her.‎

Helene needed this loan to fix the ceiling of her workshop and to pay for new cloth.‎

Helene was approached by different colleges to teach courses but since she is ‎not certified, she could not do so. She wants to one day gain this certification ‎to provide such courses and also open another workshop as a second branch.‎
