A loan of $1,150 helped to buy the sewing supplies she needs, like needles, thread, and fabric, and to be able to fill customer orders.

Laura Rosa's story

With a lot of capital, Laura set up her sewing workshop to make money to maintain the house she lives in with her three children, whose father abandoned them a while back without leaving any money for their support. Laura learned her craft by taking some courses which allowed her to do jobs that are noted for high quality and punctual delivery.

Laura has managed to capture a large number of clients with her work, guaranteeing good monthly sales. She hopes business will keep growing and later allow her to create jobs for others in greater need. Having finished a large order from a client, Laura is looking for a loan to make it possible to buy the sewing supplies she needs, like needles, thread, and fabric so she can fill orders that have been put in by her clients.

Laura hopes that this way she can keep growing the business, and her family can enjoy better income that will permit a higher quality of life and education. In addition, Laura hopes that if the business keeps growing at this rate, she can create at least one job for someone who needs work and doesn't have job prospects, and keep getting her children ahead in the process.
