Patience learned how to sew at a young age and has dedicated most of her life to this activity. This has enabled her to acquire a great deal of experience, which has resulted in a reputation for offering products that are of the highest quality and above all, unequaled services. With a sewing workshop at the town center, Patience is able to generate income, contribute financially to her household, and provide her family with a better quality of life. She does repairs and sewing of new clothing at the same time.

She received a few orders some time ago, but has not been able to fulfill them due to a lack of capital to buy the materials that she needs. For this reason, she seeks to overcome this difficulty by requesting a loan in order to buy raw materials and sewing supplies that will allow her to complete her customers’ orders. Patience dreams of continuing to develop her business and gradually improving her business revenues. This will enable her to improve the facilities in her home and to have a better quality of life.
