Karina Adilia Karlota's story

Karina Adilia Karlota, 21, is married and has a small son. She went to primary school and now knits traditional clothes. She started this line of work thanks to her mother’s support, since she paid for her training. She worked as a machine operator for some time, which helped her build some capital to buy supplies and to start her own business. She has now six years of experience and does very well. Her husband, who works as a bus attendant, supports her.

Karina is requesting a loan to buy threads and decorative embroidery of different sizes and designs, in order to increase her production and have more possibilities to attract customers and sell more. She wants to have a large establishment in the future, with several looms and several employees.
