A loan of $1,000 helped the purchase of fabric and thread for making uniforms for the beginning of classes.

Sofia's story

Mrs. Sofía makes traditional clothing articles on order or to rent for dances. She has done this work since she was very young and this is how she generates income to help her family, and also for her studies. Her home is in a very remote zone in Quillacollo Zona Saja Pampa. She has an Over lock industrial sewing machine. She lives in her parents' home, and they do not have the resources to let her study. For this reason, she works. At the moment there is not a great demand for her clothing, but she wants to stock up on materials, buying fabric and threads with the money from this loan so that when the season of high demand comes she will already have products made. She is a very hard-working person and is grateful to the institution for the support offered.
