A loan of $900 helped to buy a sewing machine and fabrics.


Sadith's story

Sadith is a 55-year old woman who lives in the city of Pucallpa with her husband and children. She is very kind and hard-working and, together with her husband, works to support their family. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources and the need to work, Sadith could not pursue professional studies.

Sadith took the initiative to start her own small business sewing and selling hammocks. She works every day for approximately 10 hours and thinks the business goes well thanks to her dedication and hard work.

Sadith is very grateful to Kiva lenders. Thanks to their support she will be able to buy a sewing machine and fabrics, and to continue working hard to achieve her dream of having a big sewing workshop.
