Nubia Del Socorro's story

64 year old Nubia keeps working hard to bring up her two children. She is a mother and head of the household and all the economic responsibilities have fallen on her since she separated from her ex-husband. When she was very young, she learned to be a dressmaker and she perfected her technique and her knowledge while working in different sewing workshops. After some years, when she had enough capital to be independent, she bought her own machines and started her workshop where she offers her dressmaking skills to others and also produces her own line of clothes. This has generated enough income to cover the basic household expenses.
In an effort to strengthen her business, she is requesting a loan to buy fabric, thread, sewing machine needles, and other things. This will enable her to have the supplies available to meet the orders she has for the school year that is about to start, so that her work increases as well as her income.
Nubia's main purpose is to strengthen her business and turn it into a competitive micro enterprise that can generate employment opportunities and guarantee the economic stability that will enable her to giver her children a better education and quality of life.
