A loan of $800 helped to purchase a sewing machine..


Ruby Liliana's story

Ruby is an entrepreneurial and thriving woman. As of approximately 6 years ago she began a clothing shop in contracting with third parties with which she has been able to get her family ahead.

She learned this position by taking classes in different schools and later carried out her practices in a clothing factory; from there she decided to build her own store, searching for independence and to be able to look after her children.

She currently generates two businesses and wants to build on her level of production, buying a sewing machine with which she will be able to carry out her tasks in a much more rapid fashion, and this way generating better income.

Her greatest dream is to be able to strengthen her business, generate more work, continue qualifying herself, and to have her own clothing line.
