A loan of $1,400 helped to buy a two-needle flatbed sewing machine.

María Fabiana's story

Fabiana is 45 years old. Her work is sewing clothing, a trade that she learned thanks to the opportunity that she had to access a training program when she was 23 years old. Now she works in third-party manufacturing, for which she has to seek contracts and in turn employ a number of people to complete the contract. Her greatest joy is being able to offer other people the opportunity to work, especially women who are the heads of their families.

Fabiana dreams of setting up a big business where she can offer stability to her fellow workers. It is clear to her that to she needs time, effort, and dedication to achieve this. For now, she is seeking to increase her production capacity, for which she is applying for a loan with which she will finance the purchase of a flatbed sewing machine with two needles, with which she hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions and those of her employees.
