Rosa María's story

Rosa María Pérez is a hard-working, courageous, and enterprising woman who has a small sewing workshop that she started 40 years ago with just a dozen shirts. Now she makes dresses, uniforms, blazers, etc. Thanks to this business, she was able to help her five children get ahead. They are all grown up and married now.

She will invest this loan in materials like fabric, thread, and buttons, as well as in the maintenance of her sewing machines.
