Nilda's story

Nilda is 40 years old and has two children: Yemilet, 13 years old, and Frank, 7 years old. They motivate her to work hard and offer them a better quality of life. She is married to Edson, who is 47 and works as an electrician. They all live in their own house, which her parents gave to them.

Nilda's work consists of making piñatas, which are dolls filled with children's toys. They are very commonly used to celebrate birthdays or other events. This work is very enjoyable for her. She has a store, which is located in a comfortable and spacious part of her house. She receives her clients there. She speaks with them and offers them options for the creation and form of the piñatas. She also makes hats, cards, and other accessories which are used for children's parties. At the same time, she offers her clients the service of preparing and selling decorated cakes to their liking.

She has been working in this business for more than 3 years, in which she has made herself known for the quality of the service which she offers. Before this business, she also worked in piñata making, but for other people. Now she works independently, which allows her to have a good income.

Her business is going very well, and as an enterprising woman, she has goals and dreams that she would like to accomplish at some point. For now, however, she only wishes to maintain her business so that she can continue saving money to expand and grow as a businesswoman. Therefore, she is asking for contributions so that she can make her plan a reality. She is committed to paying her quotas on time.

With the requested amount of 2,000 Peruvian soles, she will buy merchandise and necessary materials for the creation of piñatas and the decoration of children's parties, such as stuffed animals, posters, balloons, toys, and streamers, among others. She will then be able to continue with her business, because she wants to increase her production so that she is ready for her clients' demands.
