A loan of $3,050 helped to buy a sewing machine.

Gleider's story

Gleider is 33 years old and lives with her young daughter in a rented home in the Tablada neighborhood. She works as a seamstress, making and mending all kinds of clothing items, for both men and women and different institutions and people. She does this work from her home.

Gleider is asking for this loan to buy a sewing machine. This machine will help her increase production and in this way earn the income she needs to acquire a plot of land where she will construct her own home and have her sewing room. She hopes this will help her run her businesses better, so she does not have to change location every time her rent is up since they keep increasing the price.
