A loan of $700 helped to buy an overlocking sewing machine.

Gladis Patricia's story

Gladis is 42 years old. She has been working in the garment industry for 15 years, an activity that allowed her to acquire the experience and maturity to start her own business and to work towards becoming independent.

Her daughter who is 4 years old, demands a lot of time, so she has decided to leave her job and start her own business, working everyday from 8:00AM in the morning until 4:00PM in the afternoon depending on the volume of work. The rest of her time she shares with her family.

She dreams of being able to buy an overlocking sewing machine, so that she can deliver the best quality garments and expedite their delivery, and this is the reason she is asking for a loan as she does not have the monetary resources.
