Gloria Del Transito
Gloria is a responsible and cheerful woman; she has two children, one of whom is still under her care. She has been a seamstress for the last 31 years, an activity she began to be able to contribute to her family's income since she needed to see them get ahead. Like any responsible and committed mother she needed to do whatever was necessary to accomplish this. During the mornings she would sew her garments and during the afternoons would go out to sell them. This was most fatiguing but her desire to support her children motivated her to continue to forge ahead. Currently, she needs financing to buy fabric, thread, needles, buttons and lace. She wants to continue to make the effort so that her children will always have enough to eat.
