Mercedes
Mercedes is 32 years old and is a single mother. She lives in her own house with her three children.

Mercedes earns her living making clothing for women, men and children. She tasks herself with making the clothes her clients order with the utmost patience. She has been doing this work for about two years, and has always worked alone.

She is very peaceful because she knows her work allows her to earn her own income which provides every comfort her children need. What she likes about her work is that she can capture in a garment a design that inspires her, and she always feels useful.

Soon, she hopes to build a much larger sewing workshop and set aside a space dedicated only to the sale of her creations. For this opportunity, she is asking for S/. 2000 (2000 Nuevo Soles).

She is very excited to know that there are people providing economic support to continue developing her work, so she promises to be a punctual and responsible partner. With the amount she is asking for, she will buy sewing materials such as fabrics, threads, elastics, lace and lycra.
