Elbia Tatiana's story

Tatiana is 59 years old, and has a daughter who is 34. Tatiana knits woolen sweaters of Alpaca (the fur of the Andean alpaca). She has dedicated herself to this activity since she was 19 years old. She knits in her free time, since she works in an institution that promotes agriculture. She studied biology.

The loan she sought will be invested in supplies of wool and knitting needles.

Tatiana says that in the summer, orders for her creations increase (for winter sale). Her goal is to have a store or a post where she can sell her products. And she mentioned that the training offered by Finca Peru is very interesting and that thanks to this, she is a better person and has more self confidence.
