A loan helped a member to buy fabric.


Martha Quezada Group's story

53-year old María is married. 30 years ago she started work as a seamstress. She began this type of work as she learned it from her mother. Gradually she took on small sewing projects, offering services such as clothing repair. With her mother's help, she obtained a sewing machine with which she improved her skills and became known as a tailor. Nowadays she runs her own business.

María is seeking a loan through Fundenuse and Kiva to buy fabric to make all kinds of clothing and improve her business. Her goals are to make improvements to her house and her family's standard of living. She belongs to the committed group "Martha Quezada" alongside Reyna, who earns her living making and selling tortillas and ground coffee, and Rosa who makes and sells bread.

In this group: María, Reyna, Rosa

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Jane A.
