Emperatriz's story

Emperatriz is a single mother, head of household for her four children who their father abandoned some time ago without making any economic contribution towards their support. Because of this, she’s been going through some difficult economic times at home in the last few years.

About 7 years ago she started a business sewing for third parties and thanks to the good quality of her work she now has very good customers that make it possible for her to earn income to support her home. Because she does not have much capital, she’s had to let several good customer orders pass her by but now that she has the opportunity, Emperatriz is looking for a loan to buy supplies like fabric and thread to manufacture the large pending customer orders she has.

Her dream is to move the business forward so that it will give her the opportunity to move her four children ahead providing them with a good quality education. She also dreams with having her own clothing line that’s well-known in the marketplace.
