A loan of $875 helped to buy fabric, thread and elastic.

Cecilia Juana's story

Cecilia earns her living making clothes for all occasions. At 52 years she has a lot of experience in this field. She makes items such as wedding dresses, uniforms and suits amongst others. She likes her work very much and for this reason she would like to have a larger workshop. At the moment she only has one sewing machine and for this reason she is unable to have an assistant, whereas there are times when she needs one.

She carries out her work from Monday to Sunday when she has work to finish but usually she works every day. She will use the loan to buy fabrics, thread, elastics, that is for her businesses’ capital expenses. She hopes her business will continue to grow since her goal is to open a tailor’s workshop.
