Ines Loena
Inés is 36 years old and lives in an urban area of Guayaquil, a suburb. Every day she is busy sewing clothing like pants and blouses.
Her mother taught her how sew. She began with one old sewing machine which permitted her to have only as many clients as would support her expenses. Working every day in her home, she makes pants, dresses, and blouses for her customers. She makes enough money to give her four children, ages 20, 16, 13 and 9, a better life.
In order for her to continue with her home business, she would like to purchase cloth and threads with her micro-finance loan. In the future she would like to be about to improve her home and to have a larger work room to sew in.
