Juana Maria's story

Juana is a 60 year-old hard-working woman who learned sewing from her mother at a very early age. Since then she has worked with effort and dedication to become a micro-businesswoman.

Her work hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. She makes shirts, blouses, trousers, etc. She has many aspirations with her business and wants to continue making clothing and supplying on a concession basis. She plans to use the loan to buy construction materials to renovate her home and have more space for her activity, since her shop is located in her home. In the future she would like to finish building her home.
