Iris Del Carmen
Iris lives in the city of Managua. She is very well-known in her neighborhood because she has a sewing workshop in her home where she makes all types of clothing for men, women, and children.

Iris is applying for a Kiva loan to buy a machine to make buttonholes for her business.

She is very grateful to Ceprodel because thanks to these loans, she has expanded her sewing workshop. This allows her to offer employment to other women who need to provide for their children.
