A loan of $1,225 helped buy a sewing machine.

Maria's story

María is 48 years old and has been married for 23 years to Mr. Juan who is 50 years old. She has two grown children and thanks to them they have jobs.
María and Juan married at a very young age and began working in Argentina for many years. There they saved up to go back home and build a home they dreamed about having. Since María's mother is a dressmaker they built a small shop in their home where they make all types of clothes. After working for 10 years in this business in conjunction with their efforts they were able to get their children to attend a university.
Now, she wishes to buy a much needed sewing machine and will use the loan to purchase one.
