Tercer Cuartel Group's story

Ms. Olivia S. D. is a member of this group. She is originally from this community, having lived here for 35 years. She works as a seamstress. Her regular customers are her neighbors and family who live near her house. The items which she sews and sells are tablecloths, napkins, and cloth book covers, among others. She is 35 years old and has a high school education. She is a single mother of 2 daughters that currently depend on her. She wants this loan so that she can continue investing in her business that for the last 5 years has given her the opportunity to support her daughters. She hopes that with the loan her business will continue growing and already she has several orders for napkins to make. Ms. Olivia also works as a house cleaner, where she received an income to pay for the education of her daughters. She wants to invest the loan in buying raw materials (yarns, threads, fabrics) to make her products.
