A loan of $1,675 helped to purchase goods like needles and thread and to fulfill all the big orders her customers have requested, which she couldn't make yet due to lack of capital.

Clara Eugenia's story

Clara started learning the art of making clothing from her mother when she was very young, and sporadically worked by her side doing it. But after her husband left her seven years ago, making her a single mother and head of household, she had to start making money for sustenance. That's why she decided to bring back her knowledge to start her own business.

With very little capital, she bought a basic sewing machine and began working as a seamstress, and like that, little by little, she and her son can have the quality of living they deserve. The problem of money has always been her biggest challenge, and now it's getting close to the season of the end of the year so she has a lot of big orders to finish. She needs a loan to buy goods like needles and thread and to make the big orders that her customers have requested that she hasn't been able to complete for lack of capital.

Her dream is to be able to expand this store with more machines and to be able to create jobs for the people most in need of them.
