A loan of $1,000 helped fabric, Kitchen items, Chairs.


Belgica Nancy's story

Bélgica is 31 years old and lives in Guasmo, Guayaquil (an urban zone where the majority of the inhabitants are informal businesses). She makes clothing and has a business selling traditional food.

She began working in a seamstress shop, where she learned to make all kinds of clothing. She bough special machines so that the work would be easier and she could earn more money. Little by little with great effort and help from her mother she has grown her seamstress business. Now she works from 8 AM until she finishes her orders. She also has a business selling traditional food.

In order to have a greater clothing production she wants to use the loan to buy fabric, kitchen items, and chairs for her food business as she wants to ensure her child’s future as she is pregnant. In the future she wants to have a seamstress shop with employees to help her.
