Milagros's story

Milagros is 35 years old, a single mother, and lives with her only son who is school-aged, and it is he who motivates her daily efforts. She studied the art of dressmaking and now is one of the most asked-for seamstresses due to the beautiful details she creates to make clothes of all varieties. In the field of textiles she has 21 years of experience and it is going well. What she likes about her work is to be very detailed and that is what her customers like. Furthermore, her work is profitable because she works for various public entities which have confidence in her good work and they send her large orders. Subsequently, Milagros wants to have a well outfitted seamstresses’ shop.


She has three loans with MFP and she enjoys working with her communal bank because its members are united and supportive. The money that she asks for in this occasion will be invested in the purchase of dressmaking materials, and partly in the repair of her house.
