A loan of $575 helped to buy a case to display her work and to buy supplies and raw materials she needs to tailor some customer orders she has pending.


Maria Albertina's story

Maria has many years of experience in tailoring as she started learning at her mother's side when she was very young and since that age she has had this business as a possible source of income for her family. That is why, after she got married and had children, it was by working in tailoring for third parties that she contributed to the household expenses and improved her family's quality of life. However, her husband died a while ago and this has left her a single mother in charge of her household and financial troubles at home have not taken long to appear. For this reason, Maria is asking for a loan to improve her sales by buying a case to display her work and also to buy supplies and the raw materials she needs to tailor some of the customer orders she has pending.

Her dream is to keep doing this work and to improve her household income so she can offer her children a better quality of life. In the future, she also hopes to enjoy her old age in peace.
