Olga Marina's story

Sonia Patricia is single, 37-years-old, and has 4 children whom are all in school. She completed 2 years of middle school and works as a seamstress. She also makes aprons and gabachas (traditional work shirts), among other things.

She started this business through her own initiative and by this point has 7 years of experience. She has the support of her family.

She is asking for a loan that will allow her to buy fabric and needles, since she wants to increase her production, improve her profits, and continue helping her family in the family expenses. She hopes in the future to have a sewing machine and in this way continue to progress and obtain employees.
