Ludith
Ludith belongs to "The Orchids" community bank and lives in Jr. Tupac Amaru in the district of Tarapoto in San Martín, Peru. She is a 42-year-old married mother of three, two of whom all still under her care. She started with 300 soles and on her own initiative started a business sewing and selling undergarments for men, women and children. She has been working with the community bank for five years. Currently, she continues with the same business, making items on orders from her customers, and also has dresses in stock to show her clientele. She has a sewing machine, which is her main working tool. With the loan of 3,000 soles, which she plans to repay within six months, she will invest in the purchase of fabric by the meter, thread, elastic and ornaments in a variety of colors and increase her production of women's lingerie. She says she feels better now than when she started and more secure in the products she offers, as well as more constant and responsible with her payments. Ludith gives her thanks to Kiva partner Manuela Ramos for allowing her to grow as a businesswoman and a person.
