Sara's story

Sara is the owner of a tailoring shop, where she creates shirts, pants, and suits. She opened her business with help from her parents, who provided her with equipment. She began by doing repair work on various kinds of clothing. Now she manufactures suits, shirts, and pants. Sara hopes to grow her business and to be able to hire on other people. She will use the loan to investment in the purchase of an industrial sewing machine. She has faith that with this new service her business will grow and her economic stability will improve. She lives with a man and has three children. She is 30 years old and she depends solely on her business to support her household. Sara is sure that the loan will give her security and will allow her to save for her children’s education.
