Alba Del Socorro's story
Alba has more than 20 years of experience in sewing. She has run a small workshop in her home for 19 years. She works all day and in her workshop she strives to generate employment opportunities for low-income people. She learned how to do this work from her mother who began teaching her when she was very young. The advantage is that she is already well-known in this industry and she provides very high quality products. This has enabled her to increase her customer base and has brought in many orders. She prefers to work alone for 8 hours every day. In reality, her production capacity is not enough to fulfill all of her customer's orders. Alba needs a loan so that she can buy supplies such as fabric, thread, needles, lace, buttons, etc. for her workshop. Her biggest goal is make her sewing business successful and to be able to provide her household with better economic opportunities in order for her and her husband to get ahead.
