Neiber has liked the art of tailoring since she was very young. For this reason, she began her early experience at the age of 14, and later, to set up her own business, she studied in the National Apprenticeship Service, a technical school in Colombia that is supported by the national government, where she perfected her techniques and developed a more effective process. Now married, she works together with her husband in making uniforms and clothing in general, such as shorts and women's clothing, which she sells on credit from Monday to Sunday from 8 in the morning to 6 in the evening. Neiber buys her basic materials and supplies in specialized stores, where she obtains competitive prices according to the volume of her purchases. Her principal customers are referred by relatives, friends, and businesses whose salespeople ask for her. Her goals related to the business include setting up an infrastructure to improve her productive time, since she intends to finish adapting the apartment where she lives to increase her well-being. At this time she is applying for a Kiva loan, the first financing that she has had from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which she will buy fabrics, threads, and buttons to make clothing. With this loan, she will increase her production and her sales, and this is exactly what makes her Kiva loan her best investment.
