A loan of $1,075 helped to buy a tabletop sewing machine and supplies, and to fix broken machines.

Martha Lucía's story

Martha, the mother of a family, has been a tailor for her whole life. This gave her the idea to start her own business, which in the beginning offered tailoring services to third parties. Now, she manages her own line of clothing, while still offering tailoring services.

She will invest the loan in the purchase of a tabletop sewing machine and the repair of some broken machines, and supplies and capital to hire another worker.

This loan will allow her to improve her performance and grow her own clothing line. She hopes that the business will strengthen and last for a long time.
