A loan of $675 helped to buy a coverstitch sewing machine.


Gloria Rubiela's story

Gloria, 53, is a woman from whom life has taken great treasures. Her husband died and she was left alone with their two children. This is why she had to make the determination to find a way to move them forward. She looked for a job and began working in tailoring at the business Leonisa. Later, because of the time required by her children, she quit and started repairing clothing for her neighbors. Today she is pretty well-known in the area where she lives, so her income has increased a lot. She is applying for a loan to buy a coverstitch sewing machine to improve the quality of service. Her greatest dream is to be able to start a sewing shop and hire a lot of people.
