María Romelia's story

María Romelia is 46 years old. She is a determined woman with the will to undertake the path towards success. She says that when she was young she learned the dressmaking trade y she practiced it during many years in different businesses. With the birth of her third child she saw the need to abandon her work and dedicate herself to his care.

Now, after thirteen years of suspending the activity, she wishes to begin anew with the goal of improving the quality of life for her family. This is why she finds herself applying for a loan to buy a sewing machine with which she will initiate her business project. She dreams of the possibility of having a great workshop with which she can convert herself into a source of direct employment.
