Maria De Los Angeles's story

María de los Ángeles O. is 56 years old, married, and does not have children. María is a seamstress, and has had this business for more than forty years. With the goal of generating income, she decided to sell her products at the markets. Her business is located in her own home, where her customers realize their clothing orders. She started out with just one small sewing machine, making simple garments such as skirts and women’s suits. This is how she managed to grow her business. The financing she needs is to buy raw materials for making her clothes. Her dream is to have her own tailor shop, where she could employ a lot of people who truly want to work. The amount she is requesting is 21,000 Nicaraguan, over a term of 10 months.
