A loan of $1,075 helped to buy thread, fabric, zippers, and another sewing machine, etc.


Elsy Jacinta's story

Elsy, age 46, is married and has a 15 year old son who goes to a public school.

She started ten years ago with the settlement from her last job. She bought a sewing machine, and from there she was, little by little, getting more customers by fixing and making clothes. She did this until she came to have her own sewing shop.

She currently works from eight in the morning until five in the afternoon when she finishes her work. Elsy’s wish and her desire is to be a fashion designer.

She would like to use the loan to buy implements like thread, fabric, zippers, and another sewing machine, etc.
