A loan helped to purchase a Saga straight sewing machine.


Narciza Fernanda's story

Narciza is 25 years old and a single mother to a six year old daughter, Daniela, who attends a free school. Ten years ago, she started to work as an employee, earning a small salary. This motivated her to purchase a simple sewing machine and start a small business repairing and sewing clothing.

Today, she needs money to purchase a Saga straight sewing machine to help her do her work more quickly, which will increase her income so she can continue paying for housing, education, and food.
