Nieve Marina
Every 15 days the communal bank San Agustín gets together in the beautiful city of Calceta; a city known for its hard-working people and beautiful women.

In this place we met Marina. She is 58 years old, is married and has 8 adult children. Two of the children live with her and one is a special needs child. Her husband is a farmer. Many years ago she learned dressmaking at a school in town.

Marina has a small sewing workshop in her home. There she works on projects that people want her to do. They come to her workshop so that she may make them a garment. She can make all types of clothing but she prefers women's clothing because there are more designs available. She works everyday from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and sometimes later if she has a garment due and above all when school is starting because she also makes uniforms. In these times, her daughter helps her.

She is going to use this loan to buy fabric, thread, buttons and other sewing materials. She has been with the communal bank for four years and she likes it because of the ease of acquiring loans.

Her dream is to have a big sewing workshop.

En la hermosa ciudad de Calceta se reúne cada quince días el Banco Comunal San Agustín, ciudad conocida por gente trabajadora y sus mujeres hermosas.

En este lugar conocimos a la señora Marina tiene 58 años, está casada y tienen 8 hijos todos mayores de edad, dos de ellos viven con ella y uno es niño especial. Su esposo se dedica a la agricultura, ella desde hace muchos años aprendió corte y confección en una academia en la localidad.

Doña Mariana tiene un pequeño taller de costura en su casa, allí realiza muchos trabajos a personas que requieren de sus servicios y llegan hasta su taller para que les confeccione alguna prenda, confecciona todo tipo de ropa pero prefiere la ropa de damas ya que hay más diseños. Trabaja todos los días desde las 9h00 hasta las 18h00, y en ciertos casos hasta más tarde cuando tiene alguna prenda que entregar y sobretodo en épocas de entrada a clases ya que también elabora uniformes, en esos casos su hija le ayuda.

Este crédito lo va emplear en comprar telas, hilos, botones y otros materiales para la costura. Esta en el Banco Comunal hace cuatro años y le gusta por la facilidad para conseguir los créditos.

Su sueño es tener un gran taller de costura.
