A loan of $525 helped to buy an overlock machine.

Porfiria's story

Porfiria makes traditional hats. She is a new client, and this is her first cycle in the institution. She lives in the city of El Alto, and she is a single mother. She has three children; one is eight years old and school age. The other two are little ones.

She will use the loan to buy an overlock machine to sew more hats. She has a lot of customer demand for the hats. She pledges to make her payments punctually.

Porfiria has a great desire to progress economically and to improve her financial situation. She also wants to improve the quality of her products.

Porfiria is very grateful for the opportunity given to her by the institution.
