A loan of $2,000 helped to buy materials for a tailoring shop.

María Cecilia's story

Cecilia is a single mother. She has fed her family with the small business that she has. She does tailoring for her neighbors, and with this she makes a minimum income in order to provide food for her family.

She currently needs to increase her income which is why she needs a loan of 1 million colones (Costa Rican currency) in order to purchase a sewing machine and materials and in that way contract another person who would help her do more tailoring and be able to have more income, in order to have a better quality of life.
