Nery Marcia's story

Sra. Nery is 38 years old and lives in Guayaquil (Orquídeas). She says that she studied sewing and dressmaking before she got married. When she separated from her husband, Nery opened a sewing workshop. She has also been selling cosmetics for the past three years as another way of generating income for herself without having to depend on anyone.

Nery works by sewing and selling cosmetics throughout the day. The difficulties she faces in her business is dealing with the competition and customers who do not pay their bills on time. Nery is separated from her husband and has three children (ages 15, 12, and 8). With this loan she will buy cosmetics to sell and fabrics for making outfits. In the future, she would like to add another room to her house so that she can open a bazaar. This would allow her to expand and have a place to sell clothing.
