Eloisa's story

Eloisa is a widow who has 4 grown children, one of whom is working in another country. She is a dressmaker who has a small sewing workshop where she works hard every day.

She started in this line of work with a friend who taught her how to sew. Her eldest son helped her with his work to buy her machines, and her daughter, who is now outside the country, helped her to build her workshop. She also used to work with a friend, and in this way she saved some money to help her son gather the money. Now she is a professional in her work. She works making all types of garments.

She is requesting a loan to buy fabric, thread, buttons, sewing needles and other supplies so that she can continue to work and fill her customer's orders. She thanks Kiva and the Fundacion Paraguaya for the opportunity she is receiving, because it will be a great help to her.
