Lely's story

Lely is 51 years old and is married to Elías, who is a dental technician. She lives with her husband, her daughter who is 18 years old and her two grandchildren, comfortably in their own house. Lely's business is dressmaking of all patterns of clothing for ladies, gentlemen and children. She began with a single sewing machine. She has her workshop in her house, from where she servers all her customers in a friendly and cordial way. They are very happy with the good work she does.

She studied sewing in an occupational education center, and then she decided to start her business. Since then it's been 10 years, and she currently has three sewing machines. She works with the help of her daughter who also loves this activity. She likes her job because it allows her to capture all her creativity and show it in each of the clothing she makes. Also, she likes the income she gets from her job since it helps her husband to support the household expenses.

This time, she will request 2,5000 soles, for what she needs cooperation to realize her plans. With the amount requested, she will buy clothing materials such as machine needles, thread, fabric, elastic, buttons, and other.
