Teresa Victoria
Teresa, 54, lives in Manta. When she married she decided to contribute economically to her home and started sewing small clothing. Then, she took a dressmaking course and learned how to make party dresses. She works every day from two in the afternoon until eight at night; she can’t during the morning because she has to do her household chores. She’s married and her husband works as a co-op taxi driver. She has two children who are working adults now and who help with household expenses.

She wants to use the loan to buy fabric and a sewing machine. Her dream is to have more sewing machines in her business so she can fill orders more easily and provide employment for others who will help her get ahead with her business.
