A loan of $650 helped to buy another sewing machine, thread, closures, etc.


Mayra De Los Dolores's story

Mayra is 44 years old. She is divorced and has three sons. The eldest is 24 years old, the second is 18, and her youngest son is 12 years old. Her youngest son attends a public school and her two older sons attend a university in Guayaquil. She began her sewing workshop five years ago, since she had studied sewing at a young age. Currently, she works alone every day, starting early in the morning and finishing late at night when she is very busy; she works by request. With the loan she would like to buy another sewing machine, thread, closures, etc. Her goal is to expand her workshop and hire another person who doesn't have a stable job.
