Herminia Alejandrina's story

Herminia is 44 years old. She is married and has six children who are 25, 23, 22, 18, 17 and 16 years old. She lives with her family in Pelileo, which is near Ambato. Herminia considers herself to be a responsible and very hardworking person.
She works with a neighbor sewing denim trousers on industrial sewing machines. She has worked with FODEMI for two consecutive years. The loan she requests is to purchase a double needle lockstitch sewing machine, which would help her increase her production and tailor the trousers.
Her dream is to see her business grow so she can give her children an education.
