La Fortaleza, Group 4's story

Armanda O. is the representative of this group of five micro entrepreneurs. She started her business a year ago. She took a first loan of 8000 pesos (about 220 dollars) and is applying now for a second loan of 10000 pesos (about 277 dollars).

She is a seamstress and makes bedding items such as bedspreads, sheets, pillowcases and curtains. She makes different models to offer her customers when she visits them, but also accepts special requests. Her clients can pay her cash or take credit. In this case she arranges payment plans with her customers.

Armanda says that "preoccupations never cease to exist." She finds it challenging to sell enough merchandise to complete her loan payments and generate profits. She envisions her business as a house store with more variety. She wants to have a shop with employees that sew for her, and a secretary to take the orders. She would want to do this venture with her other group friends as business partners.

Please help us support Armanda and her friends. Thank you!

In this group: Armanda, Aurelia, Belkis, Maria, Miguelina
