A loan of $525 helped to buy a new sewing machine.


Dianis Marcela's story

Dianis is a hardworking, service-oriented 29 year old woman. She is married and has a son whom she has gotten ahead with much work and dedication.

She has been making clothing directly for customers for the past five years and learned this on her own. She works every day to generate enough resources to help her husband with the household expenses.

She is asking for this loan to buy a new sewing machine so she can increase her production, meet pending orders, and make her customers more loyal.

She says that she wants to continue working to expand her business, create jobs, and provide a better quality of life for her family.
