Flor Maria's story

Flor is a 47-year-old woman who has a great desire to boost her dressmaking business over the next few years.

Flor's business story began when she separated from her first partner. She needed to learn a trade and so she took a course in dressmaking and set up her own business. She works alone and her workshop is located in her home. She works from 8.00am to 6.00pm. The difficulties that she experiences are illnesses. Flor is a widow and all of her children are adults.

Flor's biggest dream is to expand her workshop and employ helpers. She is requesting this loan for her dressmaking workshop, to buy fabric, thread and tools.
