Karin
Karin, 36, lives with her husband and their two children in the house that she inherited from her parents. For eight years she has been making different articles of clothing. Her basic work tool is her sewing machine. She works in her shop, which is in her house, everyday. Generally, the orders that she has are from educational institutions to make school uniforms. But, she also offers her services to fix clothes. She raises hems, sews on buttons, and others. She occasionally has help from her oldest daughter who helps her during her free time. In the future, Karin wants to have a better dressmaking shop that is well equipped so that her clothes can be of better quality.

This is the third loan that she has had with MFP. She likes to promote unity in her communal bank, and her group appreciates her for that. She will use the money she is asking for to buy fabric and needles. During this Christmas season she will make various clothes for children and take them to sell in other cities.

Su herramienta básica de trabajo es su máquina de coser y trabaja todos los días en su taller, que es su misma casa. Los pedidos que tiene son generalmente de instituciones educativas para la elaboración de uniformes escolares, pero también ofrece el servicio de arreglo de ropa, como alzado de bastas, pegado de botones y demás.

Para el futuro, Karin desea tener un taller de costura mejor muy bien equipado para que sus prendas sean de mejor calidad.

Esta es la tercera vez que tiene un crédito con MFP y a ella le gusta promover la unidad en su banco comunal, por lo que es muy apreciada por su grupo. El dinero que solicita lo invertirá en la compra de telas e hilos, ya que en esta campaña navideña confeccionará varios vestidos para niños y los llevará a vender a otras ciudades.
