María Nury's story
María is 51 years old and is a single mother with a son aged 20. All of her working life she has worked in the sewing trade, having learnt the skills from scratch. Gradually she has perfected her work as she has spent many years working for third parties. By doing this she has earned enough to bring up her son and meet the household living costs, after all of the economic responsibility fell on her shoulders when her son's father abandoned them. Maria is an active and entrepreneurial woman who is good at what she does and enjoys it, and so has been able to deal with obstacles which have occurred. Currently she is asking for a loan to buy a fixed asset (flat sewing machine) and wholesale supplies (fabric, buttons, thread, elastic). This is with the aim of providing continuity for her business and being able to speed up her process. She wants to finish the production of an outstanding contract and deliver well-finished products in a timely fashion. This will help her to get more customers via referrals and she will be able to increase her income, which will be a great help towards fulfilling her dream of expanding the business and being able to offer employment opportunities to other single mothers. She also wants to offer her son a good quality university education so he can have a successful future and so they can enjoy a better quality of life.
