Noemi's story

Noemi is 35 years old and lives in her own home with her husband and her two small children who are in school. Noemi makes blouses, shirts, skirts, pants and sweatshirts. Her specialty is making uniforms and sportswear for schools. She offers her merchandise to her friends and to teachers at schools near her home. She has been working this way for six years with the help of her sister-in-law and sometimes her husband. She likes her job and likes that she can do it from the comfort of her home. Currently her goal is to add a second level to her home so that she can set up her sewing workshop with more machines. This is the 11th loan that she has obtained from field partner MFP. She is a responsible member and she always worries about the welfare of the community group. With the loan she is requesting she will buy fabric in different designs so that she can make more blouses, pants and skirts since the school season is approaching.
