Hardworking mother of two, Julieth Sarabialives with her children and husband in Cucuta, Colombia. For many years, Julieth has owned a clothing shop where she sells to women in her community. She has dreamed of expanding her skills to manufacture clothes herself for a long time; however, she didn’t have the capital to cover initial expenses like purchasing raw materials for the garments. Despite her hard work and best efforts, it didn’t seem feasible that Julieth would be able to expand her business in the way she hoped, while still providing for her family. Everything began to change when a friend encouraged Julieth to join Opportunity International. Julieth received financial training and a loan to purchase textiles and supplies in bulk. With more clothing to sell and a greater diversity of unique products, she was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Julieth will be able to save up and ensure her children receive the best education possible while supporting her own dreams and passions.
