Elizabeth's story

At 48 years old, Elizabeth is a mother to one daughter and has been making a living working as a seamstress for an employer for 18 years. Elizabeth now dreams of starting up her own workshop in order to work alongside her daughter. To do this, Elizabeth wants to invest her loan and to buy an overlock sewing machine, a coverstitch sewing machine, and a stationary sewing machine. With this she will be able to increase her income and help more with the household costs and look after her family more.
