María Gloria's story

Mrs. María is 40 years old, she lives with her two children, one is 16 the other is 14 years old and both are in school. She has worked as a seamstress for over 22 years and is very grateful; she says that thanks to this occupation she has been able to support her children. Mrs. María says that it is very difficult to work as a seamstress and sometimes she has orders from schools and does not have an assistant to help her get ahead. She sacrifices sleep by waking up at two in the morning to have enough time during the day. Her children say, “that is too much” because they don’t understand how difficult it is to be a single mother.

The loan that she seeks from the Fundación Campo will be used to buy 568 zippers, 26 dark blue cone threads, fabric, broaches, markers, and to make repairs to her sewing machine and cancel a debt with the institution. The investment will help her finish a work order that she has with a school so that she can get paid for the uniforms. Mrs. María says that she would only enjoy working in making and selling preserves which is more profitable and less work but in order to do that she needs to have her children all grown up.
