A loan of $400 helped to buy tailoring materials and replacements for the machines.


Noemi Del Carmen's story

Noemí lives with her two children, ages 12 and 8. She is a single mother. She makes a living working at a small tailor's shop. She has had the business for 7 years as a way to make income. She learned from her neighbor. She is seeking a loan to buy the materials for sewing, such as fabrics and replacements for the machines. This will allow her to cover her immediate needs and in that way she will have what is necessary to be able to make what her customers order. Her wish is to have a larger workshop and to sell clothes like at a small store.
