Milena's story

Milena is a 30-year-old single mother of two who lives with her children in Desamparados, Costa Rica.

Milena has a sewing business; she produces items such as pajamas, primary and secondary school uniforms, and special orders for her neighbors. She plans to use this loan to finance the purchase of raw materials necessary for sewing children’s and adult’s pajamas, one of her most popular products.

As a single mother, Milena must be organized. She wakes up early in the morning in order to prepare the meals for the day. She sends her children to school, following which she is dedicated to the production of various clothes. She carries out the tasks of her business until 5 p.m. at which time she starts to prepare dinner. After dinner, she continues sewing until 10 p.m.

Milena aspires to one day own her own production facility where she can provide employment for many women and improve living standards generally.
