Nieves's story

Nieves is 50 years old and lives in her own home with her husband and her 14 year old son. She makes necklaces and decorations, and is a creative designer in her own home, where she can by very comfortable. The hard part is finishing large quantities of work because she has neither a daughter to help her nor the necessary means to hire someone to help. Because of this her job is very tiring, especially when she goes out to the streets and markets to sell her products. The business is very profitable thanks to the fact that Nieves is attuned to fashion as far as colors and designs to reflect in her work and she creates new designs that appeal to the young people and differ from the competition.

However, these days the materials are increasing in price and it is harming Mrs. Nieves' production. She has the dream of installing a shop in her own home. Nieves has been working with Microfianzas PRISMA for 3 years and is very happy with the help she found with this organization. With the requested money she will acquire more materials for her jobs that will help her to increase her production and sales.
