Ana Cecilia
Ana, age 58, lives with her father and a son who keeps a steady job. She's been a widow for several years, working very hard to maintain everything she needs for her and her father. She has her own sewing shop and, with six years of experience, is able to produce well-made quality clothing that is the reason that people rely on her for dress, suit, trouser, skirt, and other orders. Ana hopes to be in a position to accept more work, thus increasing her earnings. That's why she's seeking a loan from Apoyo Integral, to be able to buy more fabrics, threads, buttons, and scraps for her sewing machine. This way she can keep producing quality work and maintain the best possible situation.
