A loan of $650 helped to buy threads, fabric, fasteners and another sewing machine.


Judith Alexandra's story

Judith is a seamstress. She is 43 years old, married, and has two adult children. She started working several years ago when her husband suffered a stroke and was unable to work. Judith had to start sewing clothes for her friends and neighbors, gradually increasing her number of customers. Her desire and wish is to also make clothes for important people in the country but her sewing machine is a little old and so she would like to buy a new one. She would like to use her loan to buy supplies such as threads, fabric, fasteners and another sewing machine.
