Sugey Del Carmen
Sugey lives in the city of Granada. She is married, 35 years old, and has a 5 year old son. She is a merchant who for 12 years has been making and selling piñatas. She began thanks to her husband’s encouragement to learn handicrafts. She liked it, and well, it aroused creativity in her that she couldn’t believe she had. Of all the things she learned to make what she loved the most was learning to make piñatas for the children.

At the beginning she gave them away to her close friends, and they said she could sell them as they are very pretty and well made. She also makes cards, gift boxes, and flowers. What one day began as a simple creative activity today has become the work tool that has permitted her to earn an income of her own.

The loan she receives is to buy raw material such as ribbons, newsprint, crepe paper, glue, cardboard boxes, and poster board. One of her inspirations is her son who tells her the piñata that he wants her to finish and which is based on the cartoons that he likes. Also, she likes to give entertainment and bring about joy among the children.

For the time being one of her goals is to increase her volume of production and the sale of her handicrafts.
