A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase a sewing machine.


Rocio's story

Rocio is 28 years old and married. She lives with her children and her husband and they're her main priority. With her loan she intends to purchase a sewing machine, which will make it easier for her to manufacture clothing. That way she'll make good use of the knowledge she acquired in the trainings, and she'll be able to get an income in order to keep on investing in the purchase of fabric and other supplies. She'll do better finishing on the garments, and in addition she'll increase the quantity of pieces she makes. With this purchase she intends to manufacture more clothes and therefore meet the orders promptly. This is the first loan she has obtained from FUDECOSUR. She hadn't had any other loans from state-owned banks before. FUDECOSUR has provided the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
