Trancito Antonieta's story

Sra. Trancito, age 57, lives in Guayaquil. She lived with her husband in eastern Ecuador for many years, but when he abandoned her, she moved to Guayaquil. Trancito decided to begin sewing and open her workshop. This enabled her to support her children and now her young granddaughter.

Trancito works alone every day from her home business. She produces blouses, trousers, undergarments, and a little bit of everything else. With this loan, she will buy fabrics, thread, and a sewing machine so that she can work with greater ease and produce more items that her customers request.

Trancito will continue to acquire more machines so that she can provide jobs to other people. This will enable her to complete more work and generate more income so that her family can have a better life.
