Erica Patricia's story
Erica is 36 years old. She is married and described as being sociable, enterprising, affable and supportive. She lives with her family. Her husband is a taxi driver and her children are 10 and 15 and in school. Her husband's income isn't enough to pay for the expenses of their humble home, and that is why more than 7 years ago, Erica started her sewing and clothing repair business. With this work, she has been able to pay for some of the household expenses, thus helping her husband. Erica wants to continue contributing to her home and that is why she is asking for some help to buy more fabric, thread, zippers, elastic and other materials necessary for sewing. This way, her profitability will increase, which will allow her to provide a better lifestyle to her family.
