A loan of $500 helped to buy a sewing machine and fabric.


Freydell Massiel's story

Freydell is 23 years old and from Estelí. She is single and has been a seamstress for five years. She had experience and became an expert in this business. She started because her mother was a seamstress and taught her, but then she looked for a course so that she could specialize a bit. This has been her only business and her hopes are to be able to create her own line of clothing to satisfy her customers’ needs.

She is asking for this loan to buy a sewing machine and fabric to make outfits that her customers have ordered. This loan will be of great help because she will also be able to do maintenance on her machines so that she can better serve her customers. Her future plans are to have her own brand of clothing, to provide better service, and remodel her shop so that she can improve her presentation. Her next goal is to have a home of her own so that she doesn’t have to pay rent and she can have a fixed business that will generate more income so that she can get ahead with her family.
