Ruth Noemi's story

Ruth, 56, lives with her children in her house located in a neighborhood in San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. For the last 20 years she’s worked making and selling dresses, women’s slacks, men’s trousers, women’s suits, etc. Ruth’s business is located at home and her customers are neighbors and friends that visit her from the various neighborhoods they live in. They prefer her because of the good service and her good work.

Ruth is asking for the loan to buy fabric, thread, machine needles and decorations for her various designs since she does tailoring and has several dresses on order she needs to deliver; she needs a variety of fabrics.

She’s very happy to work with Prisma because she’s been able to expand the business with help from the loans. Her dream is to expand the business.

San Lorenzo, Honduras - September, 2013.
