A loan of $475 helped to buy sewing materials such as fabric, thread, elastics and other items.


Llisela's story

Llisela, is 32 years old and divorced from the father of her three children, ages 15, 11 and 4, with whom she lives in her own house. She makes clothing, which she learned to do by studying at an occupational education center. She started with just one machine, but now has more than three sewing machines to do various types of finishing work on her articles of clothing, offering high quality work to her customers.

She carries on this business in her home, where her customers come and she serves them in a friendly way. She decided to start a business, as she left her job and needed an occupation to generate income. In addition there was demand from her neighbors on seeing the fine finishing work in her sewing.

This will be her first loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial assistance she is receiving to move forward. With the amount requested of 1300 nuevos soles, she will buy sewing materials such as fabric, thread, elastics and other items so that she can increase her output.
