A loan of $1,075 helped to buy fabrics and a sewing machine..


Amparo Leonor's story

Sra. Amparo lives in Manta. She enjoyed sewing as a young girl, so when she became an adult, she started her own sewing business. Amparo produces dresses, blouses, and all types of women’s clothing during the day. If she has enough material, then she will continue to work at night. Amparo is not married since she is separated from her spouse. She has two young children who attend a state school.

With this loan, she will buy fabrics and a sewing machine for making other types of items. As a result of this loan, Amparo dreams of having a larger workshop where she can produce curtains, bedspreads, and other products. She hopes to have more capital so that her family lacks nothing.
