Obras Group's story

Sra. Norma B. D. T. is the president of the Grupo Obras. She is in the business of making clothing and costumes. She tells us that she initially began making costumes for school children, and in order to obtain clients, she attended different high schools in her town of Callao to offer her services. She also did work for a bridal store, but little by little she decided to continue with her own business of renting costumes, until she succeeded in making herself well known. Currently she has her own tailoring shop which she is dedicated to full-time. This way, she helps her husband who works as a taxi driver. Together they both support their three children in their university education.
Sra. Norma is also venturing into another business, which is the sale of tuna, which she does on Saturdays and Sundays in the market. She feels that little by little she is reaching her goals, one of which is to finish building her house, and to make it, as she says "very pretty". With this loan from EDAPROSPO, she will continue investing in her business, so that she will be able to continue growing and producing that which makes her very happy.

*Sra. Norma appears very cheerful seated amongst all of her OBRAS group colleagues.
