Cadith
Cadith, 50, is a widow and has five children whom she lives with in her own home. She wants to give them a better quality of life.

Cadith works doing upholstery. She works making and repairing seats and covers for vehicles like motorcycles and motortaxis. She has an establishment in her home where she has had her business for the past ten years. She takes care of cutting and sewing the pieces that are then places in the vehicles. She has help from a worker and occasionally one of her daughters. She also rents out a motortaxi daily, receiving a set payment at the end of every work day.

She wants to continue moving forward to rise up along with her family and now more than ever because she will soon be a grandmother. What she likes about the work is her daily income which means she can turn over her money with greater ease. It is going well for her and she can maintain the same work in the the future she can consolidate and outfit her establishment with better equipment and sewing machines to improve customer service. This time, she is asking for S/4000. She is grateful to those who make her access to financing possible, which makes her more certain of moving forward with her work. She promises to make her payments on time. With the amount she has asked for, she will buy materials for upholstery, among them foam, special needles, thread, canvas, plywood, glue, and other things that she needs to do her work.
