A loan of $625 helped to buy coloured cloth and fabric for dress-making business.


Ayaba Gloria's story

Ayaba Gloria K. is a young single woman with a real passion for dress-making. She opened her own studio in 2005 after training for 3 years under the instruction of a dynamic woman. Now, working for herself, she works in every possible way to ensure the success of her small business. She is asking for this first loan in order to buy ‘pagnes’ (coloured West African cloth) and fabric so that she can make and sell clothes. With the income from this business, she will be able to support herself.
