Libertad De San Francisco Group's story

Maura Patricia is married and is 36 years old. She did not have the opportunity to go to school. She has 5 children, 3 of which are studying.

She has 12 years of experience making pants and sports uniforms. She began this work as a seamstress for a neighbor. She counts on the support of her husband who works in road maintenance for the State.

She is organizing a group to request a loan to purchase fabrics of various colors to increase the volume of production of pants and sports uniforms for children. In the future she hopes to have a storefront to distribute her products directly to the public.

The other members of the group make t-shirts and sporting goods.
