A loan of $700 helped to buy thermal fabric.


Gabriela Marlene's story

Gabriela is a tranquil, hardworking woman who very much wants to get ahead for her family. Gabriela is 33 years old living with her husband and three children in Atuntaqui which is located 15 minutes from Otavalo in Imbabura Province.

Gabriela works with her sister making thermal and Lycra jackets. This business helps Gabriela cover some of the household needs and provide daily food for her children. This is why she needs a new loan from Fodemi to buy rolls of thermal fabric to increase production of thermal jackets which will lead to higher sales and good income for the month of May which will improve her quality of life.

Gabriela dreams with her children becoming professionals and that her business grows so she can have a big workshop and employ staff.
