A loan helped to buy supplies, such as fabrics, threads, and notions, and to perform maintenance on her machines.


Maria Del Carmen's story

Carmen is 48 years old and is a tremendous leader. She is someone who, together with her group of four employees, has developed a clothing business and fought to position her own brand of clothing and distribute it in villages and commercial areas around the city of Medellin.

With the aim of continuing the growth of her business, Carmen is asking for a loan so she can buy supplies including fabrics, thread, and notions, and to perform thorough maintenance on her machines. Her goal is to grow her business, generate more employment and to have constant work for herself and her employees throughout the year.
