A loan of $900 helped to buy fabrics and thread.


Anonymous's story

This client lives in Guayaquil. Ten years ago, she learned how to sew from her sister-in-law who is a seamstress. They now work together. In her work as a seamstress, the borrower does not have a set schedule.


Her only difficulty related to her business is being able to deal with her son’s illness. Her son is autistic, so most of her time is spent administering his treatment. The borrower is married and her husband works for a private company. He earns a basic salary, which is set aside for the household expenses. They have two children in a state school, but she would like to have her son with special needs attend a private school.


With this loan, the borrower will buy fabrics and thread for her business. Her dreams for her family are for them to be healthy and for her children to have the best preparation. She would also like to open a large bazaar and acquire a car that her family can use.
