Flor Maria
Flor is a woman of 28, and has many ambitions for making her sewing business prosper in the next few years. Her story begins when she was 22, and wasn't able to go to school, not even to a vocational school. But by means of a three-month course, she learned many things about sewing, which now has helped her to improve herself.

She works on her own, and doesn't have fixed hours. It is difficult for her when her small child is sick. She is married, and her husband is retired. She has five children who go to public school.

Her dream, now that she has a lot of experience and several machines, is to have her own shop, since what the companies in the magazines pay for each article of clothing is little. That's why she wants the loan to buy a coverstitch machine, fabric and thread.
