Maria Beatriz's story

Beatriz works in textile manufacturing, specifically producing outfits and clothing for children, which she sells wholesale for delivery in Otavalo or Ibarro markets. She lives in the Natabuela area of Antonio and was previously recognised nationally for her work. She learnt the trade a long time ago when working for a number of companies and now she works for herself. She lives in the tola area, has her own home and lives with her husband and children. Beatriz's husband is a street vendor selling tostadas and fritadas and this is how they support their family. She buys the raw material, fabric to produce whole sale and delivers her product. She is asking for this loan specifically to buy raw materials, as she already has a large order to deliver and can increase her income and offer a better lifestyle to her family.
