Elida's story

Elida is separated and lives alone at the moment. She has a grown up son who is in Argentina at present. He sends her help from there.
Elida relates that, in order to start her business she had to travel to Argentina to work. It was there that she learnt the trade of dressmaker, working as a seamstress in a factory producing wind cheater jackets. She was able to save money over the years, and as a result, was able to return to her own country, buy a sewing machine and start up her business. At the present time, she is one of the best known people for sewing articles of clothing, jackets, curtains, sheets etc.
The loan that Elida has applied for is intended for the purchase of fabrics and other articles, so as to be able to satisfy her customer’s wishes. In this way, she intends to offer them better service and more speed.
