A loan of $900 helped to buy an overlock sewing machine.


Ana Lucia's story

At the age of 43, Mrs. Ana Lucía has one child and has worked in her own sewing workshop for 12 years. She makes clothing and uniforms, and learned this work from a friend. Ana Lucia works with a neighbour and a family member in her workshop. She wants to buy an overlock sewing machine in order to improve her production; it will take her less time to complete an order with this machine. With this loan, Ana Lucia will be able to increase her income and improve her family's quality of life. Her dream is to have a large workshop and generate direct employment for her friends and family.
