A loan of $525 helped buy fabric and thread.

Haydee Mercedes's story

Haydee has a business that she has been managing herself for five years. She started working for other people as a salesperson and an assistant. That way she was able to learn. She decided to open a business making children’s clothes. Also, she and her husband sing vernacular music. They have done this since they were young.

These jobs help them pay the family expenses. They also pay for their children’s education.

Her objective is to be able to finish paying for a piece of land that they got through much effort. She wants to undertake a small clothes making company.

She will use the loan to buy fabric and thread for the new season of making clothes.

Haydee is grateful for the loan.
