A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a coverstitch machine.

Lucila Del Socorro's story

For 10 years Lucila has been working independently making all kinds of clothing, a skill that she learned in a store where she worked for 14 years. Unfortunately, due to personnel cuts, Lucila had to begin a new challenge.

Currently she works in her workshop with the goal of helping her two children to get ahead. Every 15 days she is sent 300 garments to finish, which occupies the majority of her time. Lucila needs to buy a coverstitch machine that will streamline her processes and help her to get her assignments in on time and with better quality, but she doesn't have the funds to make the purchase. She knows that with this machine she will improve her workshop. Her dream is to have the necessary space to work and, day-by-day, to increase production.
