Nuris is a loving mother that lives in Montería, Colombia, with her husband. They have raised and supported seven children, and although they are now full grown, they struggled to support them as they grew up. Nuris works as a dressmaker, designing and sewing dresses for clients, but has never been in the best financial situation. Nuris heard about Opportunity International from a neighbor, who told her about his experience and how much his business had grown with a loan. She thought a loan would also help her in her dressmaking business, and she sought support as well. Nuris received valuable financial training and a loan, which she used to buy fabrics and materials. Her dress sales have increased and her business has grown thanks to the new variety of fabrics she has available. With her increase in business, Nuris has been able to hire an employee. She has received a lot of recognition in the community and is happy that she can work close to her children. Nuris dreams of expanding her business and being able to offer more jobs in her community.
