Nory Aracely
Nory is 37 years old. She has a dressmaking workshop and lives in las Orquídeas de Guayaquil (an urban area which is called 'Orquídeas' - orchids - because when the place was discovered they found many orchids there).

Nory's mom taught her how to sew and make clothes. She started with one sewing machine and managed to attract enough customers to cover her expenses. She works every day in her home making pants, dresses and blouses for her customers so that she has enough income to provide her 4 year-old son with a better life.

To continue with her work, Nory needs to buy a sewing machine and fabric for her sewing workshop. In the future she would like to improve her dressmaking workshop and provide her family with good financial stability.
