Gloria Estela's story

Gloria is married and has an 8 year-old daughter. She is a hardworking person who, with a lot of effort, has managed to get ahead and overcome the great adversities that life has presented her. A long time ago she started to sew garments, and thanks to some savings, she decided to become independent and set up a sewing workshop in her home. This way she could be there to care for her daughter and her business. With her sewing workshop, she has the opportunity to make a financial contribution to the household so that her family can enjoy a better quality of life and gradually overcome the financial difficulties they face. Thanks to the good quality of her work, her orders have been increasing. This is why she is seeking a loan to buy a tabletop sewing machine, so that she can increase her production capacity to respond to her customers' orders. Her main dream is to be able to help her daughter get ahead by providing her with a good quality of life and access to a good quality education. Also, she aspires to be able to provide her with access to a university education in the future.
