A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase wool in a variety of colors, ribbons, feathers, large pins, thread, and fabric.


Sandra Elizabeth's story

Through the support received, Sandra has managed to improve her knitting and sewing business, a business which has yielded her good income, with which she has paid for the necessities which her humble household incurs.

Sandra no longer has children to support, but she is caring for two granddaughters who are her adoration and need her care. It is for this reason that Sandra works arduously to get her family ahead.

She wants to continue with her business, but she needs more working capital, with which she will purchase wool in a variety of colors, ribbons, feathers, large pins, thread, and fabric, so to make more clothing, rugs, and blankets of different styles and sizes which will make her customers get her merchandise, allowing her to continue supporting her family.
