Alba Teresa's story

Alba Teresa is 65 years old, separated, and lives with her family in a house she owns. They live in Portoviejo, a city affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016 and now by the COVID-19 pandemic.

At her house, Alba Teresa has a sewing shop where she makes sheet sets, mattresses, curtains, and quilts. In general, her customers ask her for them in advance and she says that her customers prefer her because her products are made of good material. She also offers her products to homes.

At first, the social distancing left her without work due to the fear of the virus and various restrictions which prevented going out to sell or her customers from coming to her house to ask for her products. But, currently she is working with the biosafety protocols.

This loan is to purchase fabric, elastic, upholstery foam, tapestries, lace, thread, and other materials. Her dream is for her sales go back to as they were before and for her family to be very healthy.
