Since she had the talent for sewing, she didn't hesitate to start doing it for a living, and with the help of Kiva partner Movimiento Manuela Ramos she decided to start her own sewing shop out of her home. She tells us that the business is going very well, and she works on orders that her clients request in advance. She tends to her customers with the friendliness and charisma that she is known for. With her initial loan of 300 soles, she purchased meters of fabric, threads of different colors, and other odds and ends, and has continued with the business ever since. With the current loan of 3,000 soles she is requesting, she plans to purchase meters of fabric of different styles and colors, scissors, big spools of threads of various colors, sewing needles, pins and buttons. Today she feels like a very accomplished woman with a strong desire to keep moving forward and realizing her dreams.
