Johana Patricia's story

Johana is a single mother and head of her family with one 8-year-old child, as her child's father abandoned them a long time ago without making any financial contribution for his support. With the goal of generating the income that she needs to cover her household expenses, Johana has been working in sewing for approximately the last 9 years. She learned this activity thanks to her mother, with whom she worked for a long time. Thanks to the good quality of her products, Johana has many good orders from her customers. However she is facing a difficulty as she doesn't have a machine that she needs to complete the sewing of her products, so she needs to pay for it in order to be able to do this work, and so her costs are increasing considerably. It is for this reason that she is looking for a loan that will allow her to purchase an industrial sewing machine with which she can make all her clothing production. Her costs will go down considerably in a way that will increase her profit margin, and so she can earn greater income for her household. Johana dreams of having a large sewing workshop where she can generate employment for those who most need it. In addition, she dreams of providing her son with access to a better quality of education and better financial opportunities to progress.
