A loan of $1,000 helped purchase fabrics and thread.

Miriam Gladys's story

Miriam is 40 years old and lives in Orquídeas de Guayaquil, an urban named after the many orchids that existed when the place was discovered. She has a sewing and tailoring workshop.

She began working at a sewing factory. Upon learning the necessary skills, she decided to become independent and earn her own money. With a little bit of effort, Miriam bought a sewing machine and fabric. Now she works every day from 8am to 4pm.

To increase her clothing production, she wants to use this loan to buy fabrics and thread. In the future, Miriam wants to have her sewing workshop completed so that she can provide work to other people.
