A loan of $1,100 helped to buy an overlock machine that will allow her to increase the production capacity of her shop.


Gloria Ines's story

Gloria has been in the sewing business for ten years, working for a dressmaking company. Thanks the the experience she acquired, she has managed to establish her own sewing shop, where she offers her sewing services. She has had the shop for four years. With this shop her household financial conditions have improved considerably. They have been able to gradually overcome the difficulties that they had.

Even though her shop is able to generate employment for two people with great need, the production capacity of her shop is not enough to respond to the large customer orders she has. That is why Gloria is looking for a loan to buy an overlock machine that will allow her to increase her shop’s production capacity.

Her dream is to have a large shop that is very profitable. She dreams that it will allow her to have better financial conditions in her household in order to have a better quality of life with her husband and her children.
