A loan of $700 helped to buy fabric, threads, needles, lace and elastic.

Liseth's story

Liseth, a humble seamstress, is from Pueblo Nuevo, a municipality of Estelí. She told us that her first experience with a Kiva loan was very helpful in improving her business. The loan allowed her to buy primary materials for the creation of school uniforms and sports uniforms. She is able to complete requests that she has pending so she, together with her sister, work together to improve the business and look to create new clients. She is seeking a new loan to buy primary materials, such as high quality fabric, threads in differente colors, lace and elastics to be able to make suits for men and women. Now that the graduation ceremonies are approaching she has orders to fill and clients that are making various requests and she needs fabric to work. She always pursues her dream to repair her humble home and to better air condition her sewing shop.
