Roberta
Roberta is from the community of Moyotepec, Ayala in the State of Morelos, México. She is 52 years old, separated and has four children: José Alberto, 34, Juan Carlos, 30, Blanca Selene, 26, all married and Jezebel, 16, who is single and studying belly dancing.

She has a family embroidery and openwork workshop. She asked for her loan to buy raw materials: thread, fleece, Tergal (polyester), cotton skirting and twill to make tablecloths, shawls, aprons, painted and embroidered napkins. She started her business 25 years ago due to need because she was a single mother and needed to work. She enrolled in a program sponsored by the federal government that gave her her sewing machines. She set up her family embroidery and openwork shop where she, her husband and her children work. Her business is important because the family has employment and she is proud to see that her daughters are learning what she began; they work making the shawls and embroidering the tablecloths, the open work and to see them finished in such an original and pretty way. Her business is popular because it’s special craftsmanship with colored embroidered designs. Her hope is to enlarge the workshop for her children’s future.

She wants to say to Kiva and to Fundación Realidad: “Thank you for your help and please continue to support us with the loans.”

Moyotepec is a pretty town. It has fields of corn and sugar cane. The weather is hot.
