Corazon De Jesus Group's story

Carla Violeta is a member of the group Corazon de Jesus. She is the mother of two children who are of school age. She lives with them and her husband who is a general contractor. She studied cutting and dressmaking and for ten years she has been working in what she loves to do, providing sewing and dressmaking services.

She mainly works making sportswear in her home. She began with one sewing machine, and then bought a serger.

The loan that Carla Violeta is requesting will be invested in buying another sewing machine since she has a helper who supports her in being able to deliver the orders on time. It takes a lot of work due to how comfortable and well-finished the clothing is. Her main clients are the nearby schools.

Looking forward, Carla Violeta has the goal of setting up a boutique to be able to show the clothing that she makes. She feels content and grateful to the Kiva lenders since, thanks to them, her business has grown and she can contribute to the family expenses and give them some pleasures. She says, "Thank you for giving a boost to our progress."
