A loan of $900 helped to buy rolls of piqué fabric.


Susana Teodosia's story

Susana, 42, is married to Julio, and has three children aged 12, 8 and 6. All of her children are school-aged. Her house is located in the central Pampahasi area, 20 minutes from the center of the city. She and her husband have a business making sports clothes in a small workshop that they have set up in their house. They make the sports clothes based on orders from the various schools in the area, and also for the minibus unions that have various groups. The sports clothes that they make are mainly made from piqué fabric. Also, they make a variety of logos according to the order, which can be silk-screened or embroidered. At this time, they are requesting a loan to use as capital so that they can buy rolls of cotton piqué fabric, because this type of fabric becomes scarce at the end of the year, and they want to get ahead of this, and because their previous loan went very well. Susana and her husband want to be able to expand their sewing workshop with the purchase of an embroidering machine.
