Tania's story

Sra. Tania belongs to the communal bank group "Virgen de la Puerta”, which meets in the Bellavista District of Bellavista Province, Department of San Martín. She is 33 years old and lives with her partner and 1 year old daughter.


She has been in business for 4 years. Little by little, she started generating an income and saving money. Since she knew how to sew, Tania did not hesitate opening her own tailoring shop. With the support of Manuela Ramos, she started her business in a good location where she could attend to her clients. When it comes to her sales, she works according to her customers’ orders. One of her goals is to expand her business by adding modern industrial machines.


She continues to design clothing and has many loyal customers who frequent her shop with their orders. Known as a kind-hearted person, Tania attends to each client personally.


With this loan of 3000 soles, she will buy various types of fabric, scissors, hand sewing needles, sewing machine needles, pins and buttons.


Today, Tania is a very accomplished woman who has the drive to realize her other dreams. She thanks Manuela Ramos for helping her and other women start and grow their businesses.
