Gloria Elizabeth
Gloria is 27 years old. She has a partner and a son. She is a young entrepreneur who since childhood has worked very hard along with her grandmother doing the household chores as her mother died when she was a young girl. This is why she grew up with her grandparents supporting her.

She attended a dressmaking course in the community where she lives. When she was 23 years old she joined with her partner and they had a son. Despite having her family she continued her studies and last year she graduated from high school.

She has a tailor’s shop making pants, shirts and skirts. She also makes school uniforms for some schools. All the supplies that she needs such as buttons, thread, zippers, among others, she buys in a city, a half hour trip and her young son accompanies her.

The loan that she is asking for through Fundación is in order to buy a zig zag sewing machine, two ordinary sewing machines and dressmaking supplies.

With the investment she will be able to hire more staff as the demand is quite large and she could get more income. Among her plans is to have a better established tailor’s shop, to work in better conditions, and to improve her home.

Gloria tiene 27 años de edad, es acompañada y tiene un hijo. Es una joven emprendedora, que desde su infancia a trabajado muy fuerte junto con su abuela realizando los quehaceres del hogar; ya que su mamá falleció cuando era una niña. Por eso creció con sus abuelos quienes la apoyaron. Ella estudio un curso de corte y confección en la comunidad donde reside, a los 23 años se acompaño con su pareja y procreo un hijo. A pesar de ya tener su familia, ella continuo sus estudios y el año pasado se graduó de bachiller. Ella ejerce la sastrería, elabora pantalones, camisas y faldas; además elabora los uniformes escolares para unas escuelas.

Todos los insumos que necesita como botones, hilos, sippers, entre otros, los compra en una ciudad, tarda en llegar una media hora y las realiza en compañía de su pequeño hijo.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar una maquina de coser estilo rana, otras dos maquinas de coser normales e insumos para la sastrería. Con la inversión podrá contratar a más personal, ya que la demanda es bastante grande y obtendría mejores ingresos económicos. Entre sus planes esta el poseer un taller de costureria mejor estableció, para trabajar en mejores condiciones y mejorar su casa.
