A loan of $425 helped to purchase various fabrics and accessories for assorted clothing patterns.


Maria Adilia's story

Doña María Adiia is 53 years old and is a seamstress by profession. Her husband works as a freelance mason-construction worker. She helps with the household expenses. They have seven children, the youngest who is 17 and still a dependent in school. All the other children are independent adults who's hard work has made them grow and now they help their parents. The loan is requested to invest in fabrics and accessories for clothing patterns, the majority of which are school uniforms. This helps her to maintain her customers, and continue improving her standard of living, while also taking advantage of the timing of the school opening season.
