Rut Maria's story

At the age of 34, Ruth is an enterprising woman and mother who has fought for her children’s wellbeing. She works every day with the hope of making progress and of moving her business forward. Ruth manufactures clothing for third parties but she’s currently facing the problem that one of her sewing machines stopped working properly and she has to buy a replacement part for it but she does not have enough money to do so. She is asking for a loan, therefore, to pay for the machine’s repair and to buy sewing supplies like fabric, thread, buttons and others.

Ruth dreams with improving her and her family’s quality of life and to do so wants to improve the quality and efficiency of her work so that sales will improve and income will increase thus attaining economic stability.
