Marina's story

Marina is 45 years old and the single mother of a young son. She dedicates herself to making clothing, exclusively school and business uniforms.

She worked from a young age with her mother, from whom she learned the trade. After much effort and dedication, she managed to open a small workshop with four sewing machines. Today, she has a well-established customer base.

She is known throughout her area for the quality of her clothing and the reasonable price she charges for each of her creations. She now needs this loan to buy fabric in bulk so she can lower the prices of her clothing even more. Marina wants to open her own salon and showcase the unique clothes that she makes.

The loan requested would be destined for the purchase of the tools of her trade.
