Lisseth Giovanna's story

Lisseth is 30 years old. She was not able to go to university but, thanks to her efforts, she completed a technical education in dressmaking and tailoring. This training has helped her a lot. Through her own initiative and with a lot of determination and dedication, Lisseth has had her own tailoring and dressmaking business for two years. In addition she works selling chickens. Lisseth works every day from early in the morning, and keeps going for around eight hours. She thinks the work is going well because of her dedication and because of the friendly treatment she gives to her customers.

Lisseth thanks Kiva lenders as, thanks to the support provided, she will be able to buy construction materials in order to continue improving her home and to achieve her dream of finishing building her house. She can also continue to support her younger sister as she trains to become a professional.
