María Cecilia's story

María Cecilia is a 60 year old woman. She is married and has 2 children. She currently lives with her husband who supports her in her work. Maria Cecilia leaned dressmaking 15 years ago but it was only 2 years ago that she decided to start her own business, a dressmaking workshop where she produces her own designs and also sews for third parties. Through this business she provides employment for 2 other people.

Currently Maria Cecilia is asking for a loan to buy a skiver machine which she needs in the workshop to meet more orders and increase production capacity, which in effect will increase client numbers, mean bigger returns and a proportional increase in her quality of life.
