Maria Rosa's story

"Trust all your actions to God’s hands and your projects will be realized." This is María Rosa’s, favorite quote. She is 58, and learned about tailoring when she was young, thanks to her aunt’s willingness to teach her. When she was well-prepared, she found a job in a small workshop, where she worked for more than ten years. She decided to quit and work independently from home, which made it possible for her to take care of her two children.

She now has a small workshop where she works with tailoring. She is requesting a loan to buy an overlock machine in order to be able to offer a better service and increase her production capacity. This will result in better income and the improvement of her quality of life.
