Dinis Maria's story

Dinis is 46 years old and married. For six years she has had a sewing business. Through her business she generates income to support her family. She also hopes to continue acquiring knowledge to advance more in her business.

Dinis is seeking a loan to buy materials to make improvements to her dressmaking shop and general store, and to buy glass display cases. This will allow her to offer her customers a greater variety of products to choose from, and will allow her to do better work every day. In turn, Dinis can accomplish her goal of making her shop grow and generating at least one other job.
