A loan of $1,425 helped to buy machines.


Sandra Cristina's story

Sandra is 31 years old and is the single mother of two children. All her life she has been sewing for various national companies to feed her family. She went out on her own five years ago and started her own workshop in her home and is providing work for others.

Her greatest advantage is the opportunity to care for her children and be able to help them with their schoolwork. She dreams of being able to buy a fileting and recovering machine to increase her production when classes resume. Since she doesn’t have her own resources to finance the purchase so she is asking for a loan. This is her only source of income; she is very professional, and has her customers’ loyalty. She hopes to be able to save up enough to buy her mother a dignified home.
