A loan of $200 helped to buy materials, such as cloth, threads, buttons, elastic and trimmings, for making clothes.


Ana Maria's story

Ana María is sixty-five years old. She is single and owns her own sewing workshop, which is in her house. She does sewing to order and repairs clothes but her best skill is making bedclothes. She started the business under her own initiative forty years ago. From a very young age she learned to sew and she wanted to become independent. She is applying for this loan to invest in her business, to buy basic materials such as cloth, threads, buttons and lace, among other things. Ana wants to improve her business and in the future she would like to make changes to her house. Ana is very grateful for the opportunity she is being given to move forward in life.
