A loan of $450 helped to buy sewing supplies for her workshop such as fabric, thread, needles, lace, buttons etc.


Claudia Cecilia's story

Claudia is a strong, service minded, hard worker. She is 35 years old, married and the mother of two children who she has pushed ahead with effort and dedication.

She has worked in the sewing field for 20 years. She provides sewing services such as making lingerie, Christmas decorations from fabric etc.

She learned this trade over time and works by herself every day. This is how she helps her husband with the economic needs of their home.

Currently she is requesting a loan to buy supplies at wholesale (fabric, thread, elastic etc.) This will allow her to have enough material available to meet timely deliveries that she has pending and allow her to satisfy her current customers.

Claudia states that she wants to keep working hard. She wants to expand her business and generate employment opportunities as well as create economic stability in order to give her family a better quality of life.
