Amparo De Jesús's story

Amparo, 63 years old, has spent 20 years in the business of garment manufacture for third parties. Together with her husband, they have struggled to ensure a better quality of life for their family. She dreams of having economic stability and enjoying her old age without preoccupations. She seeks to fulfill her dreams by growing her business, consolidating it as a garment manufacturing workshop where she can employ more vulnerable people in her area.

The reason why she is requesting a loan is to buy a sewing machine, which will permit her to increase her production capacity, improving her income and the quality of life of her family.
