Flor Alba's story

Flor, 48, has made a living for eight years making pajamas and underwear. She works every day from 8 in the morning until 6 in the afternoon in her workshop located in the living room of her house. She dreams of being able to have her own line and expanding her business to offer her products in the local market.

She wants to increase her production level and her clientele, so she's requesting a loan to invest in buying fabric and thread to produce on a large scale. This will allow her to improve her quality of life and that of her family.
