A loan of $500 helped to buy a sewing machine that "does everything".

Vanessa Sylvie's story

Vanessa is a 30 year old woman, married mother to 3 children whose age varies between 5 and 15 years, and they are all in school. She also has another dependent. She is a seamstress and opened a workshop that she has been managing for 4 years in a neighborhood of the capital. Her dynamism, her know-how and her creativity have allowed her to grow a considerable clientèle.

She would like to have a sewing machine that "does everything" to increase the diligence in the work thus the necessity of this business loan because her capital does not allow her to buy one. This will allow her to satisfy the demand and increase her profit margin. The profits resulting from this loan will be reinvested in her business to expand it.
