A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a stationary and a coverstich sewing machine..


Diane Ester's story

Diane, 41, is a mother of three children and dreams of becoming a small business owner.

She has worked in the clothing industry for over ten years and now wants to open her own workshop with the goal of having more time to spend with her children and to generate better income which will allow her to improve her living conditions.

In order to fulfill her big dream, Diane is asking for a loan to buy a stationary sewing machine and a coverstich sewing machine. She does not have her own resources for this investment.

She hopes to open her workshop in her home in order to reduce costs and to be able to attend to housework.
