A loan of $825 helped to buy a tabletop sewing machine.

Gloria Cecilia's story

31-year-old Gloria is the mother of a 10-year-old boy, and she dreams of offering him more. She worked as an operator in a tailoring workshop, but observing the exploitation she was subjected to and the poor remuneration, she decided to start her own tailoring workshop.

She has now been doing it for two years and she mainly works for other tailoring businesses. Her greatest dream is to become a source of employment in her area. Currently the orders are increasing, so she needs to buy a tabletop sewing machine because the one she has at the moment is in very bad condition.

She wants her workshop to keep growing and generate the necessary income for her to offer her son a better quality of life, a good education and financial stability.
