A loan of $1,400 helps to buy fabric, thread, and other sewing materials.


Gloria Betty's story

Gloria Betty is 62 years old. She is separated and has 3 children, all of whom are adults. They live in 24 de Mayo, a place with hardworking people who primarily work in agriculture, and which has been greatly affected by COVID_19, both economically and through the loss of lives.

She is a hardworking woman who likes to earn her own income. With it, she can make a living along with her children. Despite the difficulties, she keeps fighting. She has a sewing workshop where she produces many articles of clothing. At the start of the pandemic, her work decreased greatly because her customers did not put in orders, so she started to make masks and protective gear. Now she is once again making clothing, for which she needs the loan.

This loan is to buy fabric, thread, and other sewing materials.
