A loan of $525 helped to purchase fabric and thread for producing blouses.


Gloria Orlinda's story

44-year-old Gloria Orlinda makes women's clothes, and has her own workshop at home. She has more than 10 years experience of more than 10 years in this business and has raised her two children and financially supported her parents. Gloria want to produce blouses to offer her customers, but does not have the supplies needed for this product. She needs to purchase fabric and thread with which to make the garments and generate the income to support herself and her family.
