Sera's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to purchase rolls of fabrics, sewing kits, a bigger table, and replacement part for her electric sewing machine.


Sera's story

Sera and her family survive largely on fishing and sewing. She wants to invest more in her sewing business but knows she must sell more of her sewn items to do this. If she is to increase sales, Sera needs to boost her production. She requested a loan, which she will use to use to purchase rolls of fabrics, sewing kits, a bigger table, and replacement part for her electric sewing machine. With this working capital and continued hard work, Sera hopes to increase turnover and have more cash to spare for her family’s well-being.
