A loan of $300 helped to buy fabrics and notions (pins, needles, lining, thread, …).


Anne Marguerite's story

Anne, age 38, is unmarried and the mother of three children. After her training period, she opened a small sewing workshop, which has been doing good business for ten years. She also does embroidery but lacks tools to complete her orders faster and meet customer demand in a timely fashion.

This is why she's seeking a loan to buy fabrics and notions (pins, needles, lining, thread, …) so that she can avoid going to the market all the time, and focus on sewing and selling to her customers.

The profits earned thanks to this loan will enable her to not only buy sewing supplies and expand her business, but also provide for herself and her family.
