A loan of $750 helped to buy two overlock sewing machines.


Diana Patricia's story

Diana is a hard-working, charismatic, helpful, 31-year-old woman. She is married and has a four-year-old child who is her main motivation to fight with determination and dedication.

Currently she works at a local university carrying out various duties, but she plans to open a sewing shop so she can improve her income. She already has three machines which she bought with the salary from her job, but she is requesting a loan so that she can buy two second-hand overlock machines which she can get for a good price. Then she can start her new project which she hopes will generate enough income to provide her son with a better quality of life and an education.

In the future, Diana aims to devote herself fully to her independent business and spend more time with her family while generating resources to support her husband with the household finances and enjoy a better quality of life together with her loved ones.
