Lupe
View original language description ↓
Lupe Edna M. manufactures shoes in the traditional cholita style for a living. She has worked alongside her husband for two years now. Prior to this, she worked at an office as a secretary, but unfortunately had to leave that work once her son was born and because she got married. The art of shoe making was learned from her family, who also taught her husband, and is now what supports her family. Currently they have a workshop at their home equipped with semi-industrial machines that were bought thanks to Pro Mujer. Her main market is in the carnivals and has a few clients who take her merchandise all the way to Perú. The name of Lupe's business is named after her daughter, Duvaly. Lupe needs capital in order to buy bulk raw material since she knows that demand is strong and she has a possibility of exporting a high quality product.
