Valeriana
Valeriana, 34, is a hardworking woman who raised her two children, Iván and María, by herself; she feeds and educates them in her own house located in Azapampa.

She started out in agriculture but in time learned the occupation of embroidering skirts and traditional fabrics women use in festivals. Her work load increases in June and July although she comments that she’s been getting many orders since now so she doesn’t have to travel to other cities anymore to sell her embroidery. In addition, she’s currently studying to learn how to make blouses and pants. She comments that she’s one of the best, most responsible students. She’s already practicing and in a short time will start to make and sell because there is high demand for the articles of clothing in her locality. She still does not have all the machines she requires but little by little and with her savings she will be able to complete her workshop.

She belongs to the “Azapampa” group and this is her first MFP loan. She is grateful for the support provided and promises to be punctual with her installment payments because the members of her association are responsible, supportive people.

Valeriana will use the requested money to buy an overlock sewing machine and fabric to start making her new articles of clothing.

Valeriana tiene 34 años, es una mujer trabajadora que cuidó sola de sus dos hijos: Iván y María; a los que educa y alimenta en su casa propia ubicada en la localidad de Azapampa.
Comenzó en la agricultura, pero con el tiempo aprendió el oficio del bordado de faldas y mantas típicas que utilizan las mujeres en las festividades. Su trabajo se incrementa los meses de junio y julio, aunque comenta que desde ahora se encuentra recibiendo muchos pedidos, por lo que ya no viaja a diversas ciudades a vender sus bordados. Además, en la actualidad se encuentra estudiando para aprender a realizar blusas y pantalones. Comenta que es una de las alumnas más aplicadas y responsables, ya está practicando, y dentro de poco comenzará a confeccionar y vender, pues hay mucha demanda de las prendas en la localidad. Aún no posee todas las máquinas que se requiere, pero poco a poco y con sus ahorros podrá completar su taller.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Azapampa” y este es su primer crédito con MFP. Agradece el apoyo brindado, además de prometer ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas, pues las integrantes de su asociación son personas responsables y solidarias.
Valeriana invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de una máquina remalladora y telas para comenzar la confección de sus nuevas prendas.
