A loan of $1,075 helped to buy an overlock sewing machine.


Claudia Patricia's story

Claudia is 40 years old and has two children, aged 13 and 7. She learned to be a seamstress thanks to a friend, who hired her to work at her workshop. She now dreams to become a small entrepreneur herself, for having her own business would help her improve her economic situation and give her children the means to live with dignity. Thus, Claudia asks for a loan to buy an overlock sewing machine in order to start her business. Her dream is to have a big workshop where she could teach single mothers to sew and then employ them as seamstresses so that they can earn money thanks to their work.
