Yuli Marley's story

Marley is 40 years old. She is separated. Ten years ago, she came from the neighboring country of Colombia looking for new sources of work and a way to progress. This is how she has to find a way to meet the needs of her family. Her daughter Angela, who is 14 years old, studies in a neighborhood school in the sector. Being close to her is the biggest advantage of her small business, where she does dressmaking and mends all types of clothes. She can also work from home without leaving her family and obtain some income that she so badly needs to pay for food, healthcare and education.

With the money, Marley will buy a new sewing machine because her old one is very out-dated and frequently breaks, causing her to lose customers. With this new investment, she hopes to obtain better income to continue paying for the expenses of her humble home.
