A loan of $750 helped to buy fabric, thread, needles and various accessories.

Karen Maritza's story

Karen is a young woman who is looking to get ahead in life together with her family. Her husband continues working as a taxi driver and their children are still growing. Karen gave up her previous job as a sales promoter and now she sews with her mom. They both make different types of outfits for children and adults, depending on their customers' request. Karen is requesting this loan to invest in the new business that she has started which she hopes will prosper so that she can guarantee her children an education. She needs to buy raw materials such as fabric, thread and various other accessories in order to continue working.
