Hazbleidy's story

Hazbleidy, 20, is the mother of a four-year-old daughter, who is her main reason for trying to get ahead. She does sewing piecework in her workshop in her mother's dining room. She works every day from early morning to earn enough income to offer her daughter a better life. Her life has not been easy. Since she became a mother at an early age and her daughter's father was irresponsible, her dreams were cut short, and she found it necessary to work to support herself and her child. Though her mother has been a great help, she doesn't have the resources to improve their circumstances. Hazbleidy's dream is to have a micro business, and she needs a loan to invest in a sewing machine and supplies to increase production and generate more income.
