Pasuc Group's story

Martín Encarnación, 25, is actually in a relationship and has a son not yet attending school; he completed third grade. He works sewing fabrics like pants and shirts. He started the business with a standard sewing machine and to date has six years’ experience. He gets help from his wife who does the same kind of work.

He organized a group to request a loan that will be used to buy an industrial sewing machine that will allow them to increase production and jobs. They hope in future to have an assembly plant of their own with employees.

The other group members work raising animals and making clothes.
