A loan of $650 helped purchase fabric & buttons.


Dolores Epifania's story

Dolores has a sewing workshop and lives in Paraíso de Guayaquil, a periurban area located in the mountains with dirt roads and houses.


She worked at a clothing factory where she learned how to make clothes in large quantities. Dolores wanted to become independent and start her own business, so she bought sewing machines and materials for making clothes. Little by little, she began creating her own designs and increased her customer base. Dolores works every day in her workshop with a neighbor. She produces blouses and trousers upon request.


This loan will be used to buy fabric and buttons for producing more clothes. In the future, Dolores wants to finish the construction of her house and have a larger workshop.
