A loan of $1,150 helped to buy a holemaker, fabrics, and threads.

María Sol's story

Maria Sol is 41 years old. She is a visionary and entrepreneurial woman. Since her childhood, her greatest dream was to become a great businesswoman, creating her own business and managing her time. Even though life allowed her to accomplish her goal, she had to traverse a route that gave her experience and maturity to appropriately run her business. She has worked for more than 10 years in clothing production.

Now she is putting together her business project with the help of a neighbor and an aunt, who work daily from 8 in the morning until 7 in the evening doing third-party clothing construction.

Her great dream is to be able to have her own line of women's clothing with a recognized trademark. To achieve this, she needs an holemaking machine and to buy fabrics and threads that will allow her to make quality clothing items. Even though she has plenty of motivation, she doesn't have the money for this investment, and for this reason she is applying for a loan.
