A loan of $500 helped to purchase supplies wholesale (cloth, thread, elastic, among others).


Mary Luz's story

Mary is a thriving, helpful, and hard-working woman. At 45 years old, she is married and the mother of two children who she has brought out ahead with much effort and dedication. For 20 years, she has worked in the field of dressmaking, providing dressmaking services through procurers and to customers directly. She learned the trade empirically and she works alone every day, thus generating sufficient resources to support her husband with the economic burden of their home. Currently, she has motivated herself to request the loan to purchase supplies wholesale (cloth, thread, and elastic, among others). This will allow her to have materials available to complete the timely shipment of the orders that she has pending, fostering loyalty from her current customers. Mary expresses that she wishes to continue performing her job with much determination. She wants to expand her business and be able to generate employment opportunities, as well as guarantee an economic stability to provide a better quality of life to her family.
