A loan helped to buy an overlock sewing machine.

Ángela María's story

Angela is a hard-working woman of 31. She lives with her 8-year-old son, and since she separated from the man who was her husband, she has had to take on all the responsibilities of the household.

She has never given up and has done everything possible to raise her son, no matter what the adversities.

Twenty-one months ago she established a third-party sewing workshop, and she has harvested very good fruits from her effort and dedication.

Now she provides two jobs, but her goal is to generate another three employment positions.

She keeps the hope of being able to buy an overlock sewing machine, since she wants to increase her production capacity and take on her greatest challenge at this time, which is the faults of the foreign business that have been undermining the domestic production prices.

Her greatest dream is to have a versatile workshop capable of facing these difficulties and staying afloat.
