A loan of $850 helped to buy fabric.


Olga Fanny's story

Olga Fanny is 48 years old. She is a housewife and has worked as a dressmaker for 15 years. It's a business that allows her to generate income to help her husband with the family expenses. She makes made-to-measure clothes.

Olga has a great dream and she is starting to work to make it a reality. To achieve this she is applying for a loan to finance the cost of buying fabric for the manufacture of sports clothes. She will distribute these to wholesalers in the municipality of Rionegro, Colombia. She is sure that this will be the start of building a large business from which she hopes many female heads of household will benefit, giving them the opportunity to work and generate income.
