A loan of $525 helped to fix up her workshop since the roof is in need of urgent repair. The rest of the loan will go toward the purchase of fabrics.

Gloria Cecilia's story

Gloria worked in business administration for over ten years but she was let go due to organizational restructuring. Since she was tired of working for other people she decided to set up her own business and started sewing women's clothing which her brother sells in the village.

Currently she is facing some difficulties because the roof of her shop is in need of urgent repair resulting in water leakage which can damage her merchandise. She will use part of the loan to buy fabrics for her business to increase sales of her products in the villages.
