A loan of $825 helped to buy a coverstich sewing machine and supplies such as fabric and thread.


Yolanda Esther's story

For the past ten years, Yolanda has worked as a seamstress.

This work started from watching the daily work of her husband who markets institutional publicity items such as calendars, hats, pens and printed t-shirts.

She proposed to him that she would make the t-shits and to also make uniforms and other products that need to be sewn.

This is how they started and little by little the business has grown through daily cash and credit sales.

Her main clients are workers and referrals from them. The referrals have grown and have become her best buyers.

Her goal is to expand her workshop and finally contract workers for times when production needs to increase in order to earn more money and fulfill her dream of having her own house.

She is applying for a Credikiva to buy a coverstich sewing machine in order to improve production times, the quality of the clothes and to gradually reach her company objectives and the wellbeing of her family.
