Maria Carmen's story

María is a seamstress. She is 28 years old, married, and has two children: a three-year-old daughter and a 7-year-old son. Her mom started teaching her how to sew clothes in her small sewing workshop and María gradually came to love this work. Right now she helps her mom out in her sewing workshop. She starts work at 8.00am. Her husband works as a refrigeration specialist and his salary isn't enough to set up the workshop María so longs for. Her desire and wish is to set up her own sewing workshop as she would like to become a fashion designer. María would like to use her loan to buy supplies such as threads, fabric, fasteners, etc.
