A loan of $625 helped to invest in the purchase of machines and craft materials.


Maria Del Carmen's story

María del Carmen is married and lives with her 3 children and her husband, who are her top priority.

She will use her loan to buy a sewing machine that is needed for her sewing shop, as well as to buy materials such as fabrics, threads, lace and other products for the production of handicrafts. She currently has a location for her shop and wants to buy this sewing machine to produce more and so increase her clientele by giving her work more support and a quality finish.

Her goal is to increase her profits and give her husband extra help with household responsibilities and thus enhance and contribute to their economic stability. It is her first loan from FUDECOSUR. She hasn't had other loans in state banks before, but FUDECOSUR has given her the loan with improved ease and a much lower interest rate.
