A loan of $600 helped to buy needles, threads, scissors, and material for her business.

Fausta Karolina's story

Fausta is 33 years old and has three children who are still dependent. Fausta lives with her husband, in their own house, in a community in San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras.

For eleven years, Fausta has had a business doing dressmaking work and also selling low-cost consumer goods. Her main clients in the dressmaking work are students and police officers, for whom she produces uniforms. She also sells children's toys during the Christmas period.

Fausta is an enterprising woman who wants to and puts in the effort every day to get ahead. She is applying for a loan in order to buy basic supplies for her dressmaking work: she will buy needles, threads, scissors, material and also wants to buy a new sewing machine.

With the help of this loan, Fausta plans to improve her income and her quality of life. She is very happy to continue working with Prisma. Fausta's dream is build her own house.
