A loan of $650 helped to buy raw materials for making garments (threads, fabric, etc.).

Maria Ester's story

For 15 years, Maria Ester has been sewing garments direct. Together with her husband and daughter, she works every day with the hope of making progress in her business and filling the orders that her customers place with her. Her main task is making uniforms and aprons for restaurants and hairdressing salons. At 54 years of age, Maria Ester dreams of offering her family a better future and improving her household income.

With the motivation of achieving her dreams, Maria Ester is requesting a loan which she will invest in buying raw materials for sewing items to sell wholesale, such as threads, fabric and other basic supplies which she uses to make garments of the best possible quality. This will increase her profits and her quality of life will be greatly benefited.
