A loan of $1,425 helped to buy an industrial sewing machine.


Luz Andrea's story

Luz Andrea is a single mother head of household to her two children who are 1 and 4 years old because their father abandoned them some time ago without making any economic contributions. She used to work as an employee at a dressmaking firm but feeling that her work was poorly paid she decided to set up her own dressmaking workshop at home aiming at generating higher income to support her home. This is how she set up her dressmaking shop where she offers service to third persons and has managed to capture a large number of customers so now her production is insufficient to cover customer demand which is why Luz Andrea is looking for a loan to buy an industrial sewing machine for her workshop to increase production capacity and be able to fill all the orders her customers place. In this way she will be able to have higher sales and thus higher income that she can use to provide her two minor children with a better quality of life and access to a good education. Luz Andrea dreams with having a large workshop to generate employment for those most in need and that will allow her to provide her children with economic stability.
