Jeimy Patricia's story

For the last eight years, Jeimy and her husband have made a living working in factories for clothing companies. Two years ago, they decided to open their own family business. They bought equipment and started up their business with their severance pay from their previous jobs. With their experience and contacts, Jeimy and her husband have gotten to sell their products to various intermediaries and to participate in the festival in Grecia. Their biggest desire is to sell their products themselves. This is why Jeimy is requesting this loan. She will begin producing her own merchandise without neglecting her current clients. Obtaining a higher profit margin and improving her family's earnings is her principal objective.

Jeimy and her husband are in the process of expanding their new business. They have invested much of their money and assets into it. With an established stock of merchandise, they sell their clothes at the weekly festivals in Grecia as well as in different stores in the region. From this they earn enough money to make their repayments for this loan. Jeimy's goal is to produce clothing and sell it directly so that she earns more profits from her merchandise and achieve growth that leads to consolidation. Jeimy and her husband each have much experience in dressmaking. They started their family business with their own capital and they already have equipment and machinery that allows them to produce quality products for their clients. There is a steady market for their clothing, so they hope to produce more and sell it directly. Fortunately, she is an expert at making and marketing clothing, so she will bring T&T Apparel to consolidate in the market.
