A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase a reconditioned sewing machine.


Oscar Armando's story

The young man Oscar, age 19, is an excellent worker and son. He is the principal support of his mother in the sewing shop in which he works and carries out the sewing work which his mother taught him. The goals of improving the production process and the quality of dresses made in the shop require the purchase of a reconditioned sewing machine with which he can fulfill these objectives. Señor Oscar’s dream is to continue working in his mother’s shop and begin university studies that can be applied to the business.
