A loan of $2,025 helped to buy sewing machines.


Shirley's story

Shirley, 30, is single and lives with her three children, who are her biggest priority. With the loan she is going to buy sewing machines to make clothing. She has been familiar with and worked in this area for several years, so she has a lot of knowledge of sewing.

With this purchase she will try to set up a small tailor shop to make clothing to sell. She thinks about her children's future, for which she wants to generate the maximum profits and get ahead quickly on her loan payments and so have more income to stabilize her finances.

This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. Previously she had not had other loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
