A loan of $750 helped to buy materials for making trousers and dresses that have been ordered.


Telmis Maria's story

Telmis is 33 years old. She is single as her partner lives abroad. She has a daughter and lives in the municipality of Victoria, Yoro, with her daughter and her father-in-law.

Telmis has worked as a dressmaker for 12 years. She has her business in her home and offers dressmaking services for dresses, tops, trousers, skirts, and other things her customers order.

She is applying for a loan of 15,000 Lempiras, with which she is going to buy fabric to make trousers and dresses that have been ordered. Her dream is that her business prospers so she can help pay for daughter's schooling and build her house.
