Nana, who is married but has no children, is a dressmaker with a small sewing workshop where she works hard every day. She started in this line of work with a friend who taught her how to sew. Now she is a professional, making all types of garments.

Nana is requesting a loan to buy fabric, thread, buttons, sewing needles and other supplies so that she can continue to work and fill her customer's orders. She thanks Kiva and Yehu Microfinance for the opportunity she is receiving, because it will be a great help to her.
