A loan of $900 helped a member to buy fabric and embroidery thread.


Hilda's Group's story

Hilda's Group has three members: two women and one man. Hilda is the group's president.

Hilda is 45 years old and lives with her son in La Esperanza, 15 minutes from Ibarra, in the north of Ecuador. She considers herself to be a hard-working person and is responsible for her son.

Hilda works with her nieces, embroidering tablecloths. This is the second loan she has requested from Fodemi. She will invest it in buying raw materials such as tablecloths, fabric and embroidery thread, which will help her to increase her production so that she can improve her sales and income. Her dream is for her son to become a professional and, on a personal level, she would like to become a big investor so that she can employ some staff.

In this group: Hilda Mercedes, Wilmer Rodrigo, Monica Piedad
