Elmira's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy an overlock machine, piping and hi-speed sewing machine.

Elmira's story

Elmira, from the town of Trece Martires, is 50 years old and married woman. She has a nine-year-old dependent. To make a living, Elmira owns and operates a tailoring business providing general alterations and tailoring services to local community members. This has been her business for the last two years.

She joined CEVI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. She is requesting a loan to buy an overlock machine, piping and hi-speed machine. With this equipment, she can increase her production and accommodate more orders, thus, increasing her income for the family.

Her income will pay for daily nutritious meals, and continue to make expansions on her present business.
