A loan of $800 helped to buy a sewing machine..


Sandra Viviana's story

Sandra Viviana is a 29-year old woman who is married and has two daughters. She has worked as a dressmaker for 8 years, working first for dressmaking companies and then, thanks to the experience obtained, starting her own business. She makes all kind of tailor-made clothes, such as pajamas, sporting clothes, blouses, etc. and has obtained enough earnings to support his household and daughters.

She's requesting a loan to the Corporation to buy a sewing machine that will allow her to give an excellent finish to the clothes and a better quality to her clients. She expects to increase production and sales and, therefore, also earnings. Her biggest dream is to significantly increase her studio, to have a well-organized business and to create job opportunities.
