Morayma's story

Morayma is 24 years old. She is married and has one son. She lives in her parents' house together with her family.  Morayma's work consists of sewing and altering various garments for women, men and children. 

Each of the items she create captures her creativity, and she puts a lot of effort into the details. This perfectionism is reflected in the satisfaction of her customers when they receive a quality garment.

She has had this business for 1 year and shares this activity with her mother who taught her all she needs to know to carry out good work.

The thing she likes about her work is that she is able to work with the help of her mother. She makes sure that her customers are well-chosen so that she can receive a good income on each item of clothing she makes. 

Morayma hopes to continue moving forward with this business as she has many hopes for the future. She is asking for a loan of s./ 1500 to buy clothes-hangers, coloured thread, needles and some special fabric to sew.
