A loan of $450 helped to buy supplies and an industiral iron to improve her turnaround times.

Maria Elena's story

Maria is a seamstress who counts on a long stint of 13 years in the market offering her services to clothing companies and to whoever requests her services. Currently she relies on one person who works on set project goals and with whom she has progressed in small yet firm steps.

Given the implementation of technology and the strong competition evident in companies giving the merchandise to the provider who can complete a task in the least amount of time, Maria feels obligated to invest in her business. For these reasons she requests a loan to buy supplies and an industrial iron. This investment will bring many benefits with respect to production times. She hopes that the new work tools will expedite her jobs to bring a greater volume of clients.
