Ada was living in the Chaco as a housewife, but when their daughters wanted to study she decided to move with them to the city of Luque. Ada studied dressmaking with the idea of setting up her own shop at home in 1989.

She currently has a small dressmaking studio and her dream is to be able to grow her business one day. Thanks to this loan, she will be able to purchase fabrics and other accessories for making clothes.
