Puao's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase a new sewing machine, fabric materials, thread, and a sewing table.
Puao is a 52-year-old, married woman with three children. She runs a small sewing business which she has had for more than six years. The people in her community and her usual clients come to her to have their dresses and shirts made. She plans to use this money from this loan to purchase a new sewing machine, fabric materials, thread, and a sewing table for sewing business. With the profits she has been making from her business she has been able to improve the livelihood of her family, thanks in part to the SPBD program.
