Lita's story

Lita is 43 years old, married, and has three children with whom she lives in the home that she and her spouse built with much effort. For 20 years, she has specialized in tailoring and worked in different workshops and factories, where she did manual work. However, she realized that she could do the same work in her own home. She contracted with some factories that give her merchandise every 15 days. She adds the embellishments on handbags, which are very patiently embroidered and sewn, given that the designs are quite varied. But Lita plans to establish a tailoring workshop, work with her own designs, and sell them in the central markets in the capital. In those markets there is higher demand, equal to the demands of the people. Because of that, she works arduously to set up her own workshop. This is her sixth loan with MFF, and with the 3000 soles she requests, she will buy the machinery necessary to produce her own designs.
