She liked it very much so she took several courses to expand her skills and improve her technique. Gloria currently has her workshop where she hires some assistants to work Monday through Friday from 7am until 5pm. Her specialty is men’s three-piece suits which are in high demand and she also makes shirts, unisex pants, blouses, uniforms and dresses. Her workshop is located at home which is where she has her machines and a cutting table. Gloria’s greatest problem is delivering the finished products because since she must travel in public minibuses she fears that thieves will rob her. The loan she’s requesting is to buy fabric, thread, buttons, needles, etc. Her goal is to expand the business so she can offer employment to people.
