A loan helped to buy items that will boost her sales.

Carol's story

Carol is a tailor who sews blouses and sells them at her area's main market daily. Most of her income comes from selling women's blouses and other items at her table. She manages her time carefully so that she can both do her work and look after her family and her husband.

Carol faces a lot of competition because other women in her area also sew and sell. But she is very creative and knows how to attract woman to buy her products because her style is unique, as you can see in the photograph. She also supplements her income by selling other merchandise along with local food.

Carol is requesting this loan to buy items to boost her sales. She is passionate about her sewing and wishes to expand her passion into a small tailoring business and one day work for schools to sew student uniforms. She hopes that her loan request wins support from lenders so that she can get one step closer to making her dream come true.
