Santa Elisa Group's story

Ruby R. Sigueñas has a business called STG that plates metals, carbons and plastics. She started this job helping her father and previously had made a living sewing and studying administration. Currently she is part of the Alcom Santa Elisa group located in Los Olivos, Peru. At 30 years old and with a lot of effort she has been able to implement her business by acquiring some machines that will be very useful in continuing to expand. On the other hand, it is very important to Ruby to continue her studies, which is why she plans to open a sewing business because that will help her a lot more. With the loan authorized by Kiva partner EDAPROSPO, she plans to purchase a laptop, which she considers essential and a great help in finishing her administration degree.
