A loan of $2,175 helped to buy three sewing machines.


María Del Socorro's story

María, 38, has been sewing clothes for more than ten years; she currently works in a sewing workshop. With her vision and wish to get ahead, she’s now decided to create her own workshop which is why she’s asking for a loan to buy three sewing machines with the purpose of providing quality service improving her economic condition and securing a proper life for her 8-month-old son.

She states that since her youth she’s always dreamed with having her own workshop so she feels a great satisfaction to see that her dream is about to materialize. One of the great advantages she has is that she has many customers in the sector so she should reach a point of equilibrium in a shorter period of time.
