A loan of $550 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Leidy Cristina's story

Leidy Cristina is 27 years old and has been making clothing since her youth. Her three children are her reason for living and the engine for her work. Currently she works with her aunt, but would like to set up her own workshop because her three children demand a lot of time; time that she can’t give them because of her work. It’s the only source of income in her home. She is asking for a loan that she will use to buy a sewing machine and supplies to start her business. Her greatest desire is to be able to consolidate her customers and be able to generate income with which to support her children and pay for their education.
