A loan of $350 helped to purchase a flat sewing machine for manufacturing clothing.

Yolanda's story

Yolanda is an entrepreneurial woman; she has worked all her life in the business of making clothing -- a skill that she has learned 40 years ago thanks to a cousin who took the time to teach her. Since then, she has always tried to learn more about the manufacturing process.

Yolanda works every day from 7am until 6pm, due to a large amount of orders. Even so, sometimes she does not have enough time because she does not have a flat sewing machine -- something that she needs to speed up the manufacture. Once she can purchase this tool, she will be able to give a better quality finish to her products and to obtain additional work.
