A loan of $275 helped to buy an all-purpose machine.


Yolande's story

Yolande is a young woman, 35 years old, and the married mother of three children, from 2 to 6 years old. Two of the children are already going to school. Yolande has a small sewing workshop, which has been operating well for nine years. But it does not have all the supplies and equipment for quickly fulfilling her orders or for satisfying her customers on time. This is why she is requesting a loan to buy a machine called "all-purpose" that will help in this area.

The profits derived from this loan will enable her not only to buy her sundry sewing supplies but also to meet certain of her needs, as well as those of her small family.
