A loan of $1,575 helped to buy a sewing machine, cement and sand.


Zoila Rosa's story

Zoila is 47 years old and lives in Isla Guayaquil. She started her business 20 years ago with hard work and a desire to do well. She started out copying existing dressmaking designs so that she could learn to make her own clothing designs. She set up a room in her home as a workshop because she didn't have enough money to pay for premises. She works every day and her hours depend on the work she has to do. Zoila is married and will use this loan to buy a sewing machine. She will also buy cement and sand so that she can improve the room where she has her dressmaking workshop.
