A loan of $425 helped to purchase cloth and sewing supplies.

Louise's story

Louise is a young woman, 52 years old, and the married mother of four. After completing her training, she opened a small sewing workshop, which has been doing well for years. She also does overcasting but does not have all the supplies and equipment to fulfill special orders quickly and satisfy her customer on a timely basis. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to purchase some cloth and sundry sewing supplies (needles, pins, lining, thread, …), so that she can avoid having to go to the market all the time. She will be able to sew items and sell them to her customers. The profits from this loan will enable her not only to purchase her various sewing supplies to expand her business but also to meet certain of her needs, as well as those of her family.
