Guadalupe is content, dedicated to her work, and responsible for improving her family's well being. She lives in the city of Ibarra with her husband and four children. She makes clothing, a business she started a few years ago that is prospering because she is selling to stores in Ibarra.

Guadalupe is applying to FODEMI for a loan to buy wholesale cotton fabric to make clothing such as t shirts and household items such as tablecloths and towels so that she can increase her sales and earnings. She dreams of having a larger workshop so that she can hire staff, expand her business, and sell her merchandise at wholesale throughout the country. This income would allow her to educate her children and teach them a profession that they can continue.
