A loan of $1,100 helped buy fabric to make her own shirts.


Luz Edilma's story

With the goal of being an independent person and generating her own income, Edilma decided to start making clothes 10 years ago, a profession she learned thanks to her years of working in businesses that offered similar services. She was tired of always receiving the same salary and ventured out in search of better opportunities for her and her two children. Therefore, she wants to request a loan for the purchase of merchandise, specifically fabric, to make shirts, starting her own brand. She hopes that this loan will be the beginning of a high volume of work that will allow her to get her own storefront and expand, offering employment to many people.
