She also embroiders but does not have the material she needs to be able to get through her orders more quickly and satisfy her customers in a timely manner. This is why she is requesting a loan with which to buy fabric and sewing accessories (pins, needles, lining, thread, etc.) which will enable her to avoid going to the market all the time and she will be able to sew and sell to her customers. The profits generated thanks to this loan will allow her to buy her sewing equipment and expand her business, and also to fulfill some of her needs as well as those of her family.
