Cimi
Cimi, who is 49 years old, is married and has two children, to whom she offers much love. She now lives in a rented house along with her husband and her little ones, striving to advance. Cimi's work consists of making articles of clothing. She has a workshop in her home, and she has been doing this work for 17 years. Everything that she knows she learned by working since she was a young woman as an employee of a woman who worked in this occupation. Little by little and with much patience, she learned the techniques of dressmaking and decided to become independent to generate her own income, putting into practice everything that her employer taught her up to that time. Now she is part of a sewing workshop that she established with a partner. During the time that she has done this work, she has always searched for the best way to do her work, since many times the pressure of her customers has made her feel that she was not going to be able to complete her work efficiently. Nevertheless, she has coped with adversities, and now she has plans to expand her business, but she knows that the road to achieve this is long, and for the moment she wants to keep this as a long-term goal. Now she will prepare to begin to make her own designs and sell them, since she has orders from her customers. At this time she is applying for 1800 PEN. She is very happy to know that there are people who will offer her financial backing to continue developing her business. She also promises to be a punctual and responsible partner. With the amount she has applied for, she will stock her sewing workshop by buying fabrics, needles, threads, and other accessories that she needs in order to continue with her dressmaking work.
