A loan of $800 helped to buy a sewing machine to make clothing, and to buy tailoring supplies.


Sonia's story

Sonia is the mother of two children. She works out of her home in the profession of dressmaking. She makes clothing and sells it at the local market. With this income, she covers the expenses of her household and supports her family. Her work has been very well-received by her neighbors, who buy her products. Sonia would like to enter into the market in other cities which are farther away from the place where she lives. For this, she is requesting four hundred thousand colones (¢400,000), and with this loan she will buy fabrics, accessories, and a better sewing machine. In this way she will increase her customer base and ultimately her income.
