A loan of $625 helped to buy a surfileuse [a machine for overcasting] and a small sewing kit.

Hélène Nathalie's story

Hélène is a young woman, 29 years old and engaged. After her training, she opened a small sewing workshop that has been doing well for the past 5 years She also does the overcasting but does not have the equipment to process orders faster and satisfy her customers in time. That is why she is requesting a loan to buy the overcasting machine, fabric, and little sewing materials (pins, needles, lining, thread ...), avoiding going to the market all the time, so that she could sew and sell to her customers. The income from this loan will allow her not only to buy her little sewing materials to grow her business, but also to meet some of her needs and those of her family.
