A loan of $850 helped to repair the electricity system of her sewing workshop.


Luz Elena's story

Luz Elena is 49 years old and she is a hardworking woman with a deep desire to progress in life. She told us that she has been given the chance to work in a sewing workshop and that it was there that she has learned her activity. Once she became more expert she bought a sewing machine and she sewing clothes for her neighbors in her house, so that she could also care for her children. Together with her husband she set up the workshop to fashion clothes for third parties. Through this activity she has succeeded in getting ahead, granting a good future to her family and better education opportunities to her three children.

Her biggest wish is to expand her activity and to increase her production rate; in order to achieve her goal she is requesting a loan that she will use to adapt her locale – the room in her house – having the electricity system repaired to optimize her working time.
