A loan of $575 helped to pay for her daughters' college tuition.


Olma's story

Olma is forty-seven years old. She's married and a mother to three children. Olma is very hard working and driven. She began sewing in her childhood. She would sew dresses for women and girls in her village after school in order to support her family. She continued to sew after marriage while helping her husband raise cattle. She would fatten the cattle and her husband would sell the meat so that they could feed their children. This has been their livelihood for the past twenty years.

Olma wants her children to receive a good education. Her youngest daughter was accepted to a university this year, but they don't have enough money to pay the tuition fees. She's asking for a loan in order to pay them. They hope for your kindness.
