A loan of $525 helped to buy white flannel.

Matilde Florentina's story

Matilde lives with her husband in the city of Santo Domingo and has three adult children who no longer live with them.

Matilde has a sewing business and works in a space she fixed up in her house for that purpose. She has 17 years of experience sewing, making all types of dresses and outfits for men, women, and children, giving everyone what they want and above all tailor-made.

Now she's requesting a loan for 21,000 pesos [DOP] to buy white flannel to offer a greater variety of sewing services.

She's certain that with this investment in her business her sales will increase and also her income. Her desire for the future is to be able to build her house and have a locale for her business.
