A loan of $1,600 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Luz Amparo's story

Luz Amparo is 34 years old and is a woman motivated by the desire of seeing her three children develop professional careers. She says that she was not able to attend university because of her family’s economic challenges. Her greatest dream is to see her children enjoy the privileges that she didn’t have.

Luz Amparo has been sewing since she was young, and learned this by working in her mother’s workshop for several years. Now she is working on her own in her home since her children demand much of her time and they are her priority. She is asking for this loan so that she can improve her production by buying a double stitch sewing machine. She wants to become better known so that she can increase her workload and provide better conditions for her family.
