Grupo Patzite Costa 1 Group's story

Catarina is very friendly, responsible, and disciplined. For several years she has earned her living selling traditional clothing. Her business has grown a lot thanks to the loans she obtained through ADICLA. They have been a great help to her, and her business has succeeded in becoming one of the most well-known.

With the goal of continuing to satisfy the needs of her clients, Catarina is seeking another loan so she can offer new and modern products such as sashes, skirts, and embroidered blouses which will be at the forefront of new styles.
