Maria Vidalia's story
Maria has had to face two big tragedies in her life that have clouded her life for some time. The first was the death of her young daughter at 4 years old due to a serious illness; from that moment she had to begin to work very hard since she had another baby on the way. She works in dressmaking with third-party contracts, a very common line of work in the municipality of Puerto Berrio. The second incident was the death of her third daughter when she was 5 months old. She felt that the world had fallen apart and everything she had made was falling down. But, thanks to her courage and tenacity, she was able to overcome this crisis and she began to put more effort into her business, as much so that she splits her working time, also selling food. She asks for a loan to purchase a coverstitch machine and to purchase supplies for both businesses, and in this way she will be able to begin a business of her own line, making pajamas and blouses. It is a very enterprising idea and she wants to put all her love into this activity.
