Astrid is 46 years old and has two children. She has been working in the dressmaking industry for 15 years and uses the small studio in her house. She learned this profession from her mother, who was a dressmaker.

She has big dreams for the future and works to provide a better present for her family. Thanks to her job, there is bread in her house and her children have the privilege to study. Her wish is to improve the quality of life of her family, which is why she's requesting a loan to buy a sewing machine and fabric. This will allow her to increase her income and to have access to a decent home.
