A loan of $1,050 helped to buy a coverstitch machine.

Cristian Camilo's story

Critian Camilo is a young man of nineteen who is looking to obtain income by making clothing for third parties. He learned this trade by doing seasonal work on alterations and garment finishing. Thanks to his savings, he bought his first sewing machine and overlock machine and was able to start his business. Now, he is looking to buy a coverstitch sewing machine so that he can offer full service tailoring to his customers. (Since he does not offer this service, customers are opting to do business elsewhere). Cristian Camilo dreams that, with the progress of his business, he can produce his own line of shirts.
