Blanca Viviana's story

Blanca, 22, is a young entrepreneur living in the urban zone of Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas Province in Ecuador. With effort and study Blanca has managed to improve herself despite the hard fact that work values and dedication have gradually been lost by today’s youth.

Blanca started her sewing business six years ago. Blanca’s dreams remain intact. She wants to leave a legacy in her community, this beautiful city full of color and ancient cultures whose influence is still felt today.

With her sewing machine and her skills she works the necessary hours to sew and repair as requested and in this way grow as a businesswoman to earn her livelihood; a real challenge.

Along these years she’s taken courses to improve the sewing business and today she needs income to produce more and better products. Her dream is to be able to enter the market with top quality products, to have good competition and also to increase her raw materials in order to favor family economy.

This is the vision of a young woman who with will and effort has started a world of possibilities. Let’s allow that with future investments her dreams will become realities.
