Contreras's story

J. sells clothing from her home and door-to-door. She has been in this line of work for over 20 years. She has had much experience working for clothing factories and stores, but due to the instability of the jobs and the poor pay she decided to start her own business. She is requesting this loan because she wants to buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to manufacture her own clothing. She is a single mother of one child. She and her husband separated after she had a baby with a mental disability that passed away. She is very optimistic about the future of her 4 year old child though.
