Bella Emperatriz's story

Bella is a 35-year-old woman with a lot of drive to succeed in her dressmaking shop in the next few years. She started out over 20 years ago, when her mother used to sew. "Soon I had my children and began to become independent. To this day I sew with my daughter, who helps me with my monthly deliveries". She works with her daughter every day. Thieves are the difficulty she faces. She's not married. She has two adult children. Her most important dream is to keep on working "in order to support myself financially and continue making home improvements". That's why she wants the loan for her dressmaking shop.
