Maria Crisanta
View original language description ↓
When she was very small Crisanta leaned to embroider, thanks to the teachings of her sister. She began doing embroidery that she was given for regional outfits, but when she saw that it was a good business, she decided to not only embroider but also to make her own outfits. So for the past 10 years she has been making and selling regional outfits. This allows her a good income as people use the outfits at events held in town as well as at special celebrations.

She now needs a loan for US $250, which will be repaid in 3 months, for material for making her outfits. With your help, she will make her business grow.

Translated from Spanish by Molly Puglisi, Kiva volunteer.

Crisanta desde muy pequeña aprendió a bordar, gracias a las enseñanzas de su hermana, ella empezó haciendo bordados que le encargaban para los trajes regionales, pero al ver que era buen negocio decidió dedicarse no solo a bordar, sino a elaborar ella misma los trajes, es así como desde hace 10 años se dedica a la elaboración y venta de trajes regionales, esto le deja buenos ingresos ya que la gente los usa en eventos del pueblo asi como en celebraciones especiales.

Ella ahora necesita un prestamo por US $250 que pagara en 3 meses para tener material para la elaboracion de sus trajes. Con tu ayuda ella podra hacer crecer su negocio.
