A loan of $800 helped to buy two sewing machines (an overlocking machine and a covering machine), as well as supplies (fabric, thread, and buttons).


Gabriel Jaime's story

Gabriel Jaime, 28, has an 8-month-old son and is currently single. He has worked in sewing for 2 months after completing his training in dressmaking and patterns. With this work, he has earned an income to support his family.

He has applied for a loan to invest in the purchase of two sewing machines: an overlocking sewing machine and a covering machine. He will also buy supplies (fabric, thread, and buttons) in order to make very good-quality products to sell to his friends and acquaintances.

His greatest dream is to have a well-located business property where he can offer his complete services, with current patterns and well-finished products of excellent quality. This will allow him to increase his income to offer a better quality of life and well-being to his young son.
