Norma
Norma, 57, is divorced living in her own house. Norma works sewing and making clothes for women, men and children. She has a small workshop she set up at home. She’s been doing this activity for more than ten years.

She likes sewing; she learned it by taking courses in an occupational education center and to date it has served as her source of income. She considers her business to be quite profitable because of the good profits it nets. Because of this she plans to open a boutique at home to display her products.

This will be her second Kiva loan. She’s very happy to know that she’ll have financial support because she will feel more confident that way of making business progress. On the other hand, she commits once more to make her payments. She will use the 1,200 new soles to buy sewing supplies like fabric, thread, elastic and others.

Norma, de 57 años, está divorciada y vive en su casa propia.
Norma se dedica a la costura y confección de ropas para damas, caballeros y niños, contando un pequeño taller que instaló en su casa. Tiene más de 10 años realizando ésta actividad.
Le gusta la costura que aprendió estudiando en un centro de educación ocupacional, y hasta el momento le ha servido como una fuente de ingreso económico. Considera a su negocio bastante rentable por las buenas ganancias que le deja. Por eso tiene planes de abrir una boutique en su propia casa, donde pueda exhibir sus productos.
Este será su segundo préstamo con Kiva. Está muy contenta de saber que tendrá un apoyo financiero, ya que así se sentirá segura de avanzar con su negocio. Por otro lado se compromete una vez más de cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas.
Con el monto de 1200 nuevos soles los invertirá en la compra de materiales de costura como telas, hilos elásticos y otros.
