My name is José Luis Juarez Amado and I come from Mexico City. A few years ago, I started my own business of fixing sewing machines. At one point, I decided that I wanted to grow my business further and I applied for a group loan from Progresemos (Mexican MFI) which enabled me to buy more machines to accelerate the processes and make my business more profitable. Since then, I have obtained other loans and plan to continue doing so in the future as I want to grow my business further. Thanks to microfinance, I was able to improve and grow my business.
