Doris Elena's story

Doris is known to be a charismatic woman, devoted to her family. She is 52 years old, married and has three children. She has raised her children with patience and hard work. Doris works in the textile industry. She inherited the love for this activity from her mother and from her grandmother. She started working as a machine operator for different companies. Fifteen years later, when she had acquired the necessary experience and knowledge, she got married and had children, so she decided to become independent and opened her own workshop at home. She wanted to generate her own income and at the same take care of her family. She has been doing this for nineteen years, working tirelessly to improve and get ahead.

She is requesting a loan to buy guideways for her overlock machine, which are essential to do a perfect job and fulfill her customers’ orders on time. She will now be able to improve her production and optimize her processes, which will result in increased sales and more orders.

Doris says that her only interest is to continue working as she has been doing it so far, since she has managed to improve her family’s living conditions and has lived a good life together with her beloved ones.
