Las Emprendedoras Group's story

"Las Emprendedoras" (The Entrepreneurs) is a group whose members live in Puente Piedra, an area to the north of Lima, Peru.

Nélida's business is knitting items by hand such as sweaters, ponchos, scarves, etc. She provides a finishing service to several knitted goods factories who, in turn, export these garments. The profits that she makes from this work are very useful to her as she is able to help her husband support their household. What she would most like is for her children to finish their education and become professionals. She also hopes to continue knitting and creating new styles. She will use her loan to buy the materials that she needs such as yarn, threads, etc. She currently belongs to the 'Las Emprendedoras' group which has 10 members.

In this group: Nelida Exaltacion, Gloria Rosalia, Roberta Jheny, Maritza Elizabeth*, Rosa Manuela, Roque, Rosa*, Luz Yovana, Isabel Cristina, Julio
