Yerlena Verónica's story

The client lives in the city of Machala. She started this activity when she was abandoned by her husband. She got help from people who were close to her and managed to acquire a sewing machine she used to start her business. She then started to sew for family members and friends and later on started to go around selling the clothes she made. She’s a single mother of three children who attend a public school. She’ll use the money from the loan to buy fabric for her business.
