A loan of $1,200 helped purchase fabrics & a sewing machine.


Guillemina Angelica's story

Guillermina is 52 years old and lives in Surburbio de Guayaquil, where most of the residents are informal merchants. She has a sewing workshop and also manages a small stationery store.

Thirty years ago, Guillermina started her business so that she could help her husband financially. His job also involves manufacturing clothing. With dedication the two of them began working together to make clothes. Now their work schedule is from 8am to 5pm every day, which includes running the stationery shop as part of their business.

In order to increase her production, Guillermina wants to use her loan to buy fabrics and a sewing machine. In the future, she hopes to have a distribution center where she can sell her own brand of clothing.
