A loan of $825 helped to buy an interlock sewing machine.

Alba Lucía's story

39-year-old Alba is a single mother with three children. She has had to take care of her children's well-being and education their whole lives. Alba is an entrepreneurial woman who doesn't let herself become discouraged by life's events. She has been in the sewing business for ten years now thanks to an opportunity she received from a training institute dedicated to work and human development.

After having worked for more than eight years as an employee, Alba decided to start her own business. She set up the business in her home, offering alterations and dressmaking services.

Alba's biggest dream is to provide her children with an education so that they have the opportunity to become successful professionals. On a business level, Alba dreams of strengthening her micro business and making the income she needs to support her household. She is requesting this loan to invest in buying an interlock sewing machine so that she can improve the quality of her work.
