Yenny's business is making children's clothing (tops, skirts, jackets, etc.) She sells these products in Satipo province and neighboring areas. She has the support of her husband and they both work hard in the dressmaking workshop which is located in their home. The profits they make help them to educate and support their family. Yenny will invest the loan that she has requested in buying supplies for her dressmaking business.
