Ana Julia's story

Ana Julia is 39 years old and is a single mother of three. She is an enterprising woman who has achieved success in spite of the difficult situations she has experienced. She is a seamstress, and has other income from renting rooms. Her objective is to continue improving the rooms so as to make them more comfortable and so she can charge more for them. Ana Julia makes shirts, skirts and dresses and offers them for sale in addition to the orders that come in. Her previous loans were invested in the construction of rooms. This dressmaker works with dedication and makes sure that the orders that she has are delivered in full and on time. With the loan that she requests in this cycle, she will invest in the purchase of a variety of fabrics, buttons, thread and other items used in dressmaking. The benefits that she strives for with this loan are the increased security and comfort of her family and her customers.
