Diana Lucia's story

She will use the funds to buy a sewing machine and cloth to make clothes. She needs the loan because she lacks working capital. Diana set a challenge for helsef: to keep improving the quality of her production. She plans to use the profits to increase her working capital. Diana wishes for her business to grow and her aim is to make more clothes in different styles, in order, ultimately, to have a shop where she would sell her products, since, for the time being, she has to make do with supplying various open-air markets in her city and fulfilling orders for several schools and organisations.
