A loan of $1,725 helped buy a double needle straight stitch sewing machine to make clothes that require special manufacturing and will help to expand her business.


Blanca Rubiela's story

Blanca has a sewing workshop through which she can generate jobs and improve the quality of life for many people. Her business has contributed financially to her household income providing her husband and two children with a better life and economic opportunities to get ahead.

In her workshop, Blanca is known for good quality products and this has helped to garner a large number of clients with large orders. A new client has asked her to add a new machine to her workshop so that she can make clothes that require special stitching. This is why Blanca is requesting a loan to buy a double needle straight stitch sewing machine - to make clothes that require special manufacturing and thus continue expanding her business.

By moving ahead with the order, she can generate more income for her home and have the opportunity to employ one more person in the future - helping to improve other people's lives.

Blanca is known for her immense charisma and it is this quality that has allowed her to get past adversity and provide her family with a better quality of life with access to education for her two children as well.
