A loan of $1,200 helped to buy cotton and thermal fabric to make clothes.


Martha's story

Martha is a cheerful person who is very dedicated to her work and responsible for trying to improve her family's quality of life. Martha lives in the city of Atuntaqui with her husband and her three children. She works making clothes, having inherited this business from her mother. At the moment things are going well for her as she is distributing her products to some clothes shops in the city.
Martha is requesting a loan from FODEMI to invest in buying thermal and cotton fabric in large quantities so that she can produce her clothes wholesale. This investment will allow her to increase her sales and her income.
Martha dreams of having a larger workshop which will allow her to hire more workers and to become a large company, distributing wholesale all over the country, and using this income to give her children an education and to teach them this nice profession so that they continue the tradition.
