A loan helped To buy materials for embroidery.
Guadalupe is a 36-year-old mother of two. She is a very happy and optimistic person who works hard to provide for her family. She makes a living embroidering tablecloths and table runners by hand, and selling them from her stand in Otavalo, Ecuador. Her mom taught her the craft when Guadalupe was fifteen years old, and she has been doing it professionally ever since. Her sales have gone well so far, which is why she hopes to purchase a greater quantity of better quality materials with this loan. Guadalupe dreams of one day owning a store from which to sell her pieces, and to make enough money to send her kids to college.
