Dorian Heysil
Dorian is 38 years old and has two children. She works making clothes such as skirts, blouses, dresses, and pants. She also fixes clothing (using patches). She does this work with the support of her cousin, who is also a dressmaker. They used to work for a business, but the owner, for different reasons, closed the company and they decided to start their own business. They learned this trade from relatives who also work in this trade and have 20 years of experience. She works from her house and it can be said that her sewing is of high quality.

She has agreements with different schools in the area, where she makes them two uniforms per year. They bring her all the fabric to make the uniforms and she only buys thread, buttons, zippers, plastic decorations for the blouses, etc. She buys these accessories in stores that are located in the city that is 1 kilometer from her house.

The loan that she is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy two new industrial sewing machines. The main need that she will be able to satisfy with the granting of the loan is to buy two machines, since the ones she has aren't level and don't have the capacity that she requires. In addition, she will be able to have more time to make more clothing once she buys two machines, if they fulfill her current needs.

Dorian has plans to begin construction on her house in the future. She has always lived in rented housing and she wants to have her own house.
