A loan of $700 helped to buy an overlock sewing machine.


Luz Consuelo's story

Luz learned how to sew from her elder siblings who were beside her during the learning process. For nine years she has been working independently out of a sewing shop she set up in her own home. She is very dedicated and works every day in her shop.

She currently works as a contractor making different kinds of clothing and uniforms. The loan she is requesting is to buy an overlock sewing machine so she can improve her production quality. This will improve her lifestyle and that of her children.

Her greatest dream is to continue growing as a business owner and on a personal level.
