A loan of $1,775 helped to purchase a flat sewing machine and materials.


Luz Dary's story

Luz Dary is 49 years old. She learned the dressmaking trade thirty years ago and worked in this trade at various workshops for ten years. However, she felt obliged to retire when she had her son. She is a single mother, which was a determining factor in her decision to continue working from her home. Today, she makes women’s clothing that she sells to various shops in the town of Itagüí, Colombia. This activity has allowed her to give her son an education and provide what she can for him to the best of her abilities. Her greatest dream is to be able to have her own line of blouses and buy a large house to organize her workshop. Currently, she is requesting a loan to purchase a flat sewing machine and materials to increase her production level and generate more income.
