A loan of $1,275 helped to buy fabric, elastic and thread.


Perla's story

Perla is from Ciudad del Este and is married with 2 children, a girl of 15 and a boy of 7. She has a small sewing workshop where she works along with her husband, making uniforms for businesses. Perla set herself up in the business using money she had saved up from other previous jobs and some of her husband's money. She is a highly responsible person with a strong will to improve herself. Such is her cheerful and enterprising spirit that she will undoubtedly achieve all the goals she has set for herself. The loan which she is applying for will be used to buy fabric, elastic and thread, amongst other things, which will allow her to continue doing the jobs that her clients bring to her.
