A loan of $1,450 helped buy a special kind of sewing machine.


Elvira's story

42-year old Sra. Elvira has two children aged 16 and 13. She earns her living making clothes and has a workshop in the area of Alcochen. This will be her second loan with this institution, and she plans to use the money to buy a special kind of sewing machine for her business. The reason for seeking another loan is so that she can grow her business.

The challenges that Elvira faces are competition and the lack of machines to make the clothing. She will use any profits to buy the machines she still lacks and in this way increase her working capital. Her future wishes include owning a bigger workshop and employing people to help her make the clothing. Elvira is a hardworking person who is happy and grateful to the institution for the support it offers her.
