Imilda's story

Thirty-seven year old Imilda is a simple woman who lives at the side of her two children: Emily and Harol, whom she has cared for in a rented house for the past four years.

For more than 10 years, she has made her living making all types of garments, including casual clothing and also sportswear, in her own design workshop, which is located in her house. She sews according to customer orders, and her clients are clothing sellers. Because of the quality that she produces, her customers become permanent. Recently, she incorporated into her workshop the rental of women's formalwear, which is one more attraction for her customers who always come to her.

Her desire is to improve her sewing machines to an industrial level.

Imilda will invest the money to buy thread, cloth, and a sewing machine, if there is enough money.
