Elcira De Jesus


A loan of $825 helped to reactivate her sewing business as a single mother.


Elcira De Jesus's story

Elcira is a 48 year old woman. Due to her pregnancy, she had to leave the apparel business and devote herself to raising her daughter.

Once her partner left her and her daughter alone, she had to seek alternatives to generate income. The only opportunity she found was to reactivate her clothing manufacturing business selling her products to third parties. She expects to generate resources to continue moving forward with her daughter.

She applied for a loan to revive her clothing business. She will buy thread, nylon, and repair her machines.

It is important to support this business because it provides the opportunity to be able to move forward even in the absence of her partner because she has a daughter to support, educate, and provide a good life for.
