Zulma
View original language description ↓
Zulma N. is dedicated to making dresses for brides, Quinceaneras (special parties for girls turning 15) and all kinds of party dresses. She is a very successful seller with a clientele who advertise among their friends and acquaintances that her work is really good.



Zulma is married and has a one-year-old son. She told us that the arrival of her baby was a much hoped for blessing and says that she is in a very happy stage in her life with much success and that she now is at the level where she has enough work.



Due to the large amount of work and variety of models that are increasingly more demanding, she needs a particular Ovelor industrial sewing machine, which makes a specific type of seam that helps garments have a better finish. The loan that she asks for will be invested to purchase this machine.

Translated from Spanish by Helen Smith, Kiva volunteer.
