Alcidia
Alcidia, 51, is the mother of 6 children, all of whom are now independent. She lives with her husband, Waldir, a construction worker, who always supports her unconditionally. She learned to sew at a very young age by closely watching an aunt who sewed. Experience and practice have paid off for this mother of six because her skills are widely solicited. Alcidia wants to continue building this business of textile arts and to do so she wants to buy more materials and expand her small workshop. To reach her goal, she needs a loan. Let's support this woman who, with talent and hard work, is fighting to get ahead.
