Ada's story

Señora Ada is married to Señor Hilario, who is an agricultural technician. They have two daughters who are in school. She, along with her family, were living in the Chaco (a large, semi-arid plains region), and she worked only as a housewife. Since her daughters wanted to go to school, they decided to more to Luque. Ada has studied dressmaking, thinking of setting up a workshop in her own house, since 1989.

Now she has a little dressmaking workshop, and her dream is that someday she can enlarge her shop and in this way also be able to give work to other people.

She is applying for the loan in order to purchase fabrics, threads, needles, buttons, etc., with which she will be able to continue working and making the clothes that she has orders for. She defines herself as a person with a great will to advance and continue progressing.
