Tomasa's story

Sra. Tomasa is 41 years old and married to Sr. Anibal, age 40. They have six children who are in school, all of whom are enrolled in a grade based on their age. Tomasa and her husband do their best to give their children everything need for their studies so that one day they can become successful and honest people.

Doña Tomasa is known as a seamstress. She started in this profession more than 16 years ago around 1996. Tomasa started out with some capital that she earned while working in the neighboring country of Argentina. Now she has a business where she produces sportswear for educational institutions and sports clubs. Throughout her career, she has gained many customers who visit her home in order to place their orders.

This loan will be used to buy more supplies in bulk such as fabrics of different types and colors, thread, buttons, and zippers. As a result, she will be able to continue growing.
