Liliana is 26 years old and married to Alberto, who is 27, and they have two daughters. They have lived in the city of Itá for a few years.

Liliana works as a seamstress. She has a workshop with four industrial machines, one overlock sewing machine, and a sewing machine for collars. Both she and her husband sew and make all types of clothing for women, men, and children.

She is asking for this loan to expand her sewing workshop, since the space is becoming too small for the amount of work that they do. They also need sewing kits, thread, and needles. They believe that this loan will be a big help to all of the plans they have for their workshop.
