A loan of $1,100 helped to buy fabric and thread.

Lidia Oliva's story

Lidia, 35, lives in Cotacachi with her husband and two children who are 14 and 4 years of age. Lidia describes herself as a calm, cheerful, sincere person who tries not to create problems for herself.

She works making dresses out of Hindu fabric that she delivers to Otavalo. She’s been working with FODEMI since 2002. The loan she’s asking for is to buy 150 meters of fabric and also to buy thread. With this investment she’ll increase her work, her sales and her income which will help her provide a better education for her children. Her dream is to have a larger workshop to employ more people and continue to provide the best for her family.
