Tomaza
View original language description ↓
Fifteen years ago, Tomaza lived in her native town of Calapuja. Upon seeing that her children needed a better education, she decided to relocate to the city of Juliaca. She invested money she saved during her years of marriage in acquiring sewing machines. Thus, with great effort and dedication she began to make sweaters, gloves and scarves which she sells wholesale in San Jose’s market. Tamaza and her husband are very happy and proud of their seven children because all of them help to make their workshop a success. This affectionate mother’s wish for which she is asking this loan is to convert her workshop into one of the largest and most successful in the city. She is certain that with the support of all of her family and your collaboration, she will succeed.
