Sofia's story

Sofía, 22, is married to Mariano and they have three children: Alejandro, José and Alondra. They attend first grade and first and second grade of preschool. She has been making tablecloths, napkins and huipiles [traditional blouses] for a year.

She says that she decided to start this activity because she wanted to find a way to help her husband a bit and to help with her children’s schooling so that they can have a better future and also to enjoy a better economy. The loan she received will be used to buy more materials like: thread at wholesale, fabric and unbleached cotton.

One of Sofía’s dreams is to make her business grow more and to provide excellent service so that she can have a larger number of customers and earn more and better income. She says that this is the best possible support she could have gotten and thanks to it she now enjoys a better quality of life and a good business.
