A loan of $1,300 helped to buy fabric and thread.

Genoveva's story

Genoveva, 51, is married to Sixto and has eight children, seven of whom are married and working, while the youngest is a high school student. She is a seamstress who, over time and after getting experience, opened her own workshop. She began with a single sewing machine and now has four. Her husband raises cattle and between them they have provided everything for their children.

In the future, her goal is to expand her workshop and to buy more machines and provide jobs for others. She is applying for this loan so that she can buy fabric and thread to keep working and meeting her customers needs.
