Virginia Delmira's story

Virginia is 59 years old. She lives in the outskirts of Guayaquil. She had to work for many years as an assistant in a sewing workshop in order to have the sewing workshop she owns now. When she saw that her children needed more school supplies she decided to become independent and buy a sewing machine and fabric with her savings.

Little by little, with hard work and sleepless nights, she was able to have her sewing workshop in her house. Now she makes clothing to order for her customers. The average she makes for each article of clothing is $ 6.00 to $ 25.00. To have a better workshop with a bigger variety of fabrics, she wants to purchase fabric, buttons and fix her sewing machine with the loan. In the future, she wants to have one of the biggest workshops in her area.
