A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Maria Elena's story

María Elena is 50 years old, married, and lives with her husband and one son who studies. She would like this loan to buy a sewing machine to make underwear and sportswear. She is thinking of making a variety of clothing for later sale in the local market and surrounding areas, and she also plans to fix her neighbors' clothing in order to earn more money and obtain a better quality of life and economic stability. This is the first loan that she is receiving from FUDECOSUR. She has not previously had any loans with local banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided this loan with greater ease and a lower interest rate.
