A loan helped to buy a sewing machine, fabric, threads and supplies for making her dolls.


Paula Xiomara's story

Paula is 25 years old. She is married and is mother to a son.

Paula has a workshop where she makes dolls. Income from this activity goes towards supporting her family. She hopes she will be able to gain more knowledge to move along with her workshop.

Paula is asking a loan to buy a sewing machine, fabric, threads and supplies for making her dolls. This will allow her to offer a wider variety of products to her clients, do better work every day and so to fulfill the dream of her workshop growing and creating at least one other job.
