A loan helped to buy assorted fabric and thread.


Maria Emma's story

Maria is 74 years old and has been working as a third-party seamstress for over forty years. Her four children are her best source of unconditional support and company. Currently she works tirelessly making all sorts of clothing items.

Her greatest desire is to build her own home and to give other people the opportunity to access jobs so they can make their own income.

Today she is requesting a loan which she will use to buy assorted fabric and thread to prepare for the high season. She will do everything she needs to have her business ready to provide efficient service.
