A loan of $850 helped to buy fabrics and thread.


Amparo's story

Amparo, at the age of 55, has worked in sewing for more than 20 years. She worked for a long time as an employee in different workshops in her area, and 7 years ago she decided to become independent, with the goal of creating her own business and improving her income.

Now sewing has become her principal business, and thanks to this her family enjoys better living conditions.

Amparo is a woman full of dreams, and that is why she is applying for a loan to buy fabrics and thread for the purpose of creating a line of clothing for babies, which she hopes to sell and distribute to the stores of her municipality.

She hopes that this investment will allow her to increase her income, grow within the local market, and generate new sources of employment.
