A loan of $975 helped to buy an embroidery machine.

Patricia Lourdes's story

Patricia started sewing for a living when she was very young because she enjoyed it. Little by little, over the years she has attracted more and more customers and has been able to buy sewing machines for work. She works alone and has no fixed work schedule, since it is more like a hobby for her than work. She feels very self-satisfied because, more than anything else, she can help out with the home economy. Her husband is a taxi driver and her children go to the neighborhood school.

The loan she is requesting is to buy an emboidery machine for her workshop because it is more expensive to outsource the embroidery work, and this will help her increase sales. Patricia dreams of having a large shop where she can make all kinds of products and give her family stability.
