A loan helped to buy a complete flatbed sewing machine, fabrics, threads, zippers, and buttons to initiate her own clothing line.


Saray Damarys's story

Sara is a single, 51-year-old woman. She is a single mother who is the head of her family and works as a seamstress. She is a responsible, hard-working, and persistent person, who is requesting a loan.

Sara wants to improve her production. She would like to buy a complete flatbed sewing machine, fabrics, threads, zippers, and buttons to initiate her own clothing line. It will be more affordable for the public. It is pertinent to remember that she lives in a post-conflict area, where there are high rates of poverty and inequality.
