A loan of $875 helped to buy fabric to create costumes.


Maria Francisca's story

Francisca has been engaging in creating costumes for more than 10 years, having started with a small home sewing machine, sewing costumes in her house. She has been a Credituyo’s customer for 5 years and thanks to her previous loans she has made her activity grow: she has enlarged her activity by setting a workshop in her house and she already has an industrial sewing machine. The loans she has requested will be used to buy fabric to create her costumes, as her customers have already placed many orders with her.

Francisca dreams of owning a bigger “maquiladora” (assembly plant),and of hiring more seamstresses in order to be able to go on retirement, leaving the management of her activity to her daughters and grandchildren.
