A loan of $600 helped to purchase a sewing machine.


Raquel De Fatima's story

Raquel is 55 years old. She has a tailoring shop. She is a single mother and she lives in the region of Primavera de duran (a suburban region located farther than Guyaquil).

She started her business because she needed to cover the family's expenses. She started making clothes and soon she was able to purchase a sewing machine. She works every day to complete the orders she receives. With the loan she requests she will pruchase a sewing machine to complete her projects faster.

In the future she hopes to expand her business and purchase more sewing machines and increase her production.
