Etelgive's story

Etelgive is 45 years old, is married, and has two adult children. She is a very hard-working and enterprising woman who has aspirations to grow and get ahead, both in terms of her business and on a personal level. She first learned about the services that Fundación Mujer offers from another customer. Etelgive makes a living producing and selling bed linen, curtains, and pajamas; she also offers sewing services. Her daughter helps her during the peak fashion season. Her goal is for her business to be large enough that she can help others by offering them employment. Etelgive has faced a number of challenges in the course of her work, such as not having enough working capital to keep up with demand. Now, though, she can overcome that obstacle thanks to the funding she can receive through Fundación Mujer.
