A loan of $875 helped to buy fabric and scissors.


Melchora Senovia's story

Senovia is thirty years old and she is a single mother. She has an eleven-year-old son. Since she didn't have a job, Senovia started learning dressmaking because she needed to study something short-term in order to have an income.

Since she has to support her son and cover their expenses, she looked for an opportunity to work in her field. She started saving up until she managed to have enough capital to set up her own business, which is a dressmaking workshop.

She is currently working with a friend who has helped her ever since she decided to become independent. She has many aspirations for her her business, which is why she wants to purchase fabric and scissors with this loan. Her goal is to expand her business and get a contract to do work for a company.
