Ruth Noemi's story

Señora Ruth is 56 years old. She lives with her 2 children in her home in a neighbourhood of San Lorenzo, in the South of Honduras. For 20 years she has worked making and selling clothes, women's trousers, men's trousers, women's suits etc. Doña Ruth's business is located at her home. Her clients are her friends and neighbours who visit her from different neighbourhoods to where she lives. They prefer to come to her for her courtesy and her good work, and so she has a lot of orders.

Doña Ruth is asking for this loan to buy fabrics, threads, sewing machine needles and trimmings for the different designs she makes for her tailoring business. She is very happy to work with Prisma since with the help of the loans she has been offered, she has been able to increase her stock of materials and make different kinds of outfits. Doña Ruth's dream is to expand her business and advance the education of her children.
