Lina Patricia's story

Lina is 29 years old. She lives in a civil union and has had a business sewing clothing for the past two years. With her work, she generates the income to support her family and also she hopes to be able to continue gaining knowledge to get further ahead in her workshop.

Lina is requesting this loan to buy a tabletop sewing machine and sewing table. These will allow her to offer her customers a greater variety of products to choose from and to do a better job every day. That way, she will achieve her dream of her workshop continuing to grow and create at least one more work station.
