A loan of $800 helped to buy materials like fabric, thread and scissors.


Anabell's story

A rhythmic humming of the sewing machine tells all the neighbors that they can bring any clothing they need sewing done on. Anabell greets them with a warm smile and a good disposition. She is 38 years old, married and has two children. She learned the art of sewing 16 years ago. She is an enterprising woman and an excellent mother. Her principal support is her husband and together they look after the education of their children, making sure they have a good future.

Anabell is requesting a loan to buy materials like fabric, thread and scissors. This is the second loan she has asked for from Kiva and MiCredito and she is grateful for the support given her as she has increased her production capital and made more income. As a woman with big ideas she plans to establish her own sewing workshop and at the same time buy another sewing machine. Her goal is to continue to work and produce with care and dedication.
