A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a sewing machine that makes buttonholes.


Alexandra's story

Alexandra is 45 years old and has been making a living as a dressmaker for ten years. Her husband is her great companion and provides unconditional support as, due to health problems, they could not have children. She currently works from home, doing all types of sewing work. Her biggest wish is to set up her own workshop and to be able to provide opportunities to others to learn skills and generate their own income. Today she is looking for a loan that will be used to buy a sewing machine that can make buttonholes so that she can start her own life plans and improve the quality of service she offers. She hopes this investment will allow her to strengthen her client base and generate the necessary income to support her husband with the costs of running the household.
