A loan of $1,000 helped to buy thread, buttons, zippers, fabric, and to cover other expenses.


Maria Magdalena's story

Maria lives with her two children who are 12 and 15 years old and her husband who is 80 years old. They all help out with her business as she makes a living in dressmaking and sales. She has had this occupation for 20 years and she works at it every day. The loan she is requesting will allow her to buy basic materials like thread, buttons, zippers, fabric and to pay for other expenses. This investment will help her to strengthen the business as well as allow her to carry out some personal things. Her dream is to have a good business that will support her family and give them a better quality of life.
