Nely
Nely, 51, is married to Jose and has 3 grown children. She now lives just with her husband in her own home. She's been making wall-hangings, wool blankets, ponchos and other items woven with synthetic wool and cotton. With time, dedication and hard work, she managed to open up a stall in a handicrafts market in a location that is next to the city in her district, which is a place where tourists arrive in the area. But as she is an enterprising woman, she also has a car that she uses to provide public transportation services on the Tarma-to-Lima route.

At this time, Nely is planning to travel to various markets in the country to expand her business. She is currently knitting scarves and hats for the winter, and to do this she needs your help so that she can acquire the items she needs to continue with her business.

This is her 3rd loan with Kiva, and she feels grateful for the financial support that she is receiving to help her continue forward. She will invest the 2,000 Peruvian soles that she is requesting in the purchase of handicrafts to stock her shop and to buy more colored wool so that she can make her textile products.

Nely, de 51 años, está casada con José y tiene 3 hijos; todos ellos mayores de edad. Ahora ella vive sola con su esposo en su casa propia. Hace 20 años que se dedica a la elaboración de tapices, mantas de lana, ponchos y demás tejidos a base de lana sintética y de algodón. Con el tiempo, dedicación y trabajo, logró abrir un puesto en la casa del artesano, que queda al lado de la municipalidad de su distrito, punto de encuentro de los turistas que llegan a la zona. Pero como mujer emprendedora ella, también tiene un carro, que hace trasporte público en las rutas de Tarma – Lima. Ahora Nely, está planeando viajar a diferentes ferias del país, donde puede expandir su negocio. Ahora se encuentra tejiendo chalinas y gorras para el frío, por ello necesita de su ayuda para adquirir más mercadería para continuar con su negocio.
Este es su tercer crédito con KIVA, y se siente agradecida por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante. Invertirá los 2000 soles solicitados en la compra de artesanía, para surtir su tienda y para adquirir más lanas de colores y así elaborar sus productos textiles.
