A loan of $1,125 helped to buy supplies and repair her machine.

Mariela's story

Mariela is 64 years old. She is a living representation of how when one wants something it is possible to achieve what they dream for. For twelve years she has made a living at tailoring. With her hard work she has been able to create a micro business. She works making uniforms for students in her community.

Her proposal is to expand her business and to request a loan that she will use to purchase supplies and repair her sewing machine. This will allow her to make more of an income for her home.
