María Eugenia's story

Maria is 42 years old. She is a family-oriented woman dedicated to her 12 year old child. Her top priority is the wellbeing of her family and she is ready to do whatever is necessary to guarantee them better living conditions.

For four years she has been working as a seamstress because of the difficult economic situation that came about in her home and she wanted to help her husband with the expenses. This is why she began tailoring clothing for her neighbors and over time she has been increasing the volume of work.

Her biggest dream is to be able to provide jobs for others in her business.

Currently she is requesting a loan in order to buy a flatbed sewing machine with the idea of improving the quality of the benefits of the service and to generate better earnings that will allow her to provide her child with a better education.
