Lina Yancely's story
Lina is an active and enterprising woman who has searched for a way to earn her living with much effort and dedication. She worked for four years as an operator in a sewing workshop. She learned the work and gained the experience needed to run this type of business. With the desire to make more money she decided to become independent and open her own business where she cuts and sews garments. She finishes them with stones and accessories and then sells them. She works by herself from Monday to Saturday and has managed to gain a good clientele. This generates enough money to help her husband with the household finances. The purpose of this loan is to buy supplies wholesale (fabric, thread, buttons, semi precious stones, ribbons, etc.). Then she can increase her production, sell more garments and increase her income. Lina at 25 years old, has the goal of making her own line of clothing and having her own store to improve the profitability of her business and enjoy better living conditions with her husband.
