A loan of $1,200 helped for cement and paint.

Judith Aracely's story

Judith, 46, has a sewing shop in her living room. She lives in an urban zone called “Suburbio” that is characterized by most of its residents being informal merchants.

She started sewing gradually 15 years ago and thanks to her mother’s insistence was able to buy sewing machines and set up a shop in her living room. She makes all kinds of clothes like: shirts, blouses and dresses. Her work schedule is variable because she has a 9-year-old son who’s still in school.

She will use the loan to buy cement and paint to remodel her house to have more space for her business.

In the future she’d like her business to be larger and also to have a small stationery store.
