A loan of $1,975 helped to purchase a sewing machine to make clothing to sell.


Yamileth's story

Yamileth needs to improve her economic resources in order to raise her family, and believes that her sewing business is a promising source to achieve this goal. She is willing to do her utmost to succeed.

Yamileth is currently requesting a loan for one million colones (1,000,000) to purchase a sewing machine and fabric to make garments which she will sell in her neighborhood and beyond.

Yamileth is a member of the Caña Blancal Communal Credit Company, one of the 110 partner organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica. With this loan, she hopes to be able to grow personally and financially. She also says that it is thanks to these organizations and credit facilitators that she is able to devote more time to productive activities.
