A loan of $800 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Claudia Alejandra's story

Claudia is an enterprising young woman who, at the age of 20, already owns her own sewing workshop which she would like to expand. She requested a loan from our institution in order to buy a sewing machine.

Claudia's business is making drapes. She learned the trade from her dad because, as the eldest daughter, she was his assistant. She carries out this business in order to finance her dream which is to become a nursing professional. She is currently taking courses in basic nursing. The business also helps to support her family, above all her younger siblings who she helps with their education expenses. Claudia is a very responsible and hard-working young woman and she is grateful to the institution for the support they have offered her.
