A loan of $450 helped to buy a cutter.


Irene Elena's story

Irene has her workshop in her own home. She continues with the same activity of the production of cushions in quantity of all types and sorts, and also produces many other items of clothing, like, for example, socks for babies. The material for the socks comes from the leftover material from the cushions.

She says that it went well for her with the previous loan. She bought a sewing machine and this helped her a lot in her work. Now, on this occasion, she is requesting the loan for the purchase of a cutting machine and so, little by little, equip her workshop, improve her production, and thereby also increase her economic income.
