A loan of $425 helped to buy fabric, accessories, and cosmetics.


Maria Del Carmen's story

María and her husband continue with their small grocery store. She has worked a lot in her life, doing a lot of sewing to support her many children, who are now independent.

She's requesting the loan to invest in her main profession, buying raw materials (such as a variety of fabric and accessories to be able to fill several sewing orders) and cosmetics products.

This way she won't stop working, because she considers her job a form of therapy to keep from getting sick.
