A loan of $1,000 helped to buy an industrial sewing machine.

Maribel's story

Maribel engages in sewing seat covers and curtains for minibuses and long-distance buses used in passengers’ transportation. In this way she helps her husband Fernando, a public transportation driver; she also creates different kinds of clothes according to the requests she receives. This is a young family: they recently had a daughter and are expecting a baby. The loan requested will be used to buy an industrial sewing machine to improve the quality of Maribel’s work and consequently increase the income for her and her family. This is a very hard-working couple, and one of their dreams is to own a factory that will produce seat covers for every kind of vehicle. They are deeply thankful to the institution for the support provided.
