Ketty Mirella
Ketty, 33, is determined to get ahead in her sewing workshop over the coming years. She started the business nine years ago after graduating from a dress-making course and working with a seamstress to gain more experience. Her workshop is set up in her home.

She works alone, even on Sundays, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and has no difficulties. She has been divorced for five years and therefore earns an income working in her profession. Two of her children are students at the fiscal school. Her dream is to have a larger place for her business where she could attract more customers and take a haute couture course. She is requesting a loan to buy fabric and thread for her business.
