Llerme
Llerme is 48 years old, married, and has one daughter who is 10 years old. They live together in their own home. Llerme works as a tailor. Often she works repairing damaged garments, on occasion she accepts personalized designs from customers, and in other instances she herself gets inspired to create new designs and makes her own garments highlighting her own personal style. In addition to making clothing, Llerme also works making undergarments and intimate wear which she sells to her customers, relatives, and friends. Her workshop is located in her home where she added a room where she can work quietly. She has been managing this business for five years and in this time has learned to apply excellent craftsmanship to her work. Previously she worked for a small company, but she decided to start her own business and apply all of her experience she had earned during her time working as a seamstress. She likes what she does because she can work independently, she can set her own hours, and she also has the opportunity to employ other people because during certain seasons she contracts out to others when she has too many orders for her to fill by herself. She is sure the decision she made was the right one, as reflected in the income she now makes. She wishes to continue doing her work and later to have a bigger workshop with more machines and more workers.

In this cycle she is requesting S/. 1500 soles. She is grateful to the donors who make this loan possible and give her the opportunity to continue working to achieve her goals. With the requested amount she will purchase materials such as threads, needles, buttons, fabrics, linings and laces to continue producing the garments which she sells.
