María Yohana's story

49-year-old María is a single mother with three children for whom she works tirelessly so that she can provide them with better living conditions. She currently works as a seamstress, a trade that she learned while working as a sewing machine operator for different companies. After years of working as an employee, she decided to set up her own workshop so that she could improve her family's financial situation. María is now well known in her field for the good quality of her work and the good service she provides. Her biggest dream is to create her own line of clothing. She is requesting this loan to buy fabric which she will use to start her new project. María hopes to be able to improve her family's quality of life and continue growing her business.
