Margarita María's story

Margarita is 41 years old. She has been designing and sewing clothes for more than fifteen years in a small workshop she has in her house’s living room. With this activity, Margarita has raised her son and guaranteed him a good education, and has supported her parents economically.

María’s biggest dream is to launch her own clothing brand and produce women shirts to sell in different stores around the area. This is why she is requesting a loan to buy fabrics, threads and needles to give her project a start and generate the resources needed to support her family.
