Francisca Leonor's story

Francisca, who is 44, is in a common-law marriage. For five years she has had a business making clothing items for sales direct to clients. With her work she generates the income to sustain her family. She also hopes to keep acquiring knowledge to advance more in her workshop.

Francisca has applied for a loan in order to purchase fabrics for the making of cushions. This will enable her to offer her customers a greater variety of products among which to choose, and to do better work each day. She will fulfill her dream, which is that her workshop keeps growing to include at least one additional employee.
