A loan helped Acquire party dresses.
María has many regular customers, including schools, which purchase dresses for school functions. With this loan, she plans to buy party dresses in larger sizes.
Her dream is to increase the number of customers, including schools, which she serves. This requires that she increase her production. In addition, she wants to learn how to sew and purchase both a sewing machine and an embroidery machine so that she can expand her business.
For María, the assistance from Fondo Esperanza has been essential to her business. It has enabled her to finance her business and learn more how to manage it. Thanks to her earnings, María has been able to fund her daughter’s higher education.
