A loan of $300 helped improve her textile workshop space.


Emma's story

Emma is a 37-year-old mother of 4 children. She lives with her husband, who helps her when possible. They live in a rented home. Emma learned the art of textiles at a very young age. Later she was able to study this trade and improve her earlier empirical ideas and practices. Her experience (of 5 years) and practice illustrate this woman's dedication, which has caused her clients to recommend her services to others. Her small workshop is located in her home. Her wish for the future is to establish a larger textile workshop. This is her third loan with MFP, and with this loan she intends to build an adequate space for her workshop and thus provide better service to her clients.
