Dúo Nueva Peronia Group's story

Maria Margarita of the group "Dúo Nueva Peronia" is 52 years old. She is the mother of 4 children and the owner of a small sewing business. She mentions that she did not finish primary school but that she did learn a trade which has enabled her to build her own house.

She creates uniforms, costumes graduation gowns and marching band uniforms for local schools. She is well known within her community for being responsible and a hard worker. She has one person who helps her make clothing items and her daughters also help out when demand is high. Maria Margarita currently has 4 working sewing machines. She also plans to have a small factory one day to give jobs to more women. She is aware that it will be challenging but with God's help she will be able to make it happen.

Maria Margarita wants to give the best to her children so that they may one day have a better life and become professionals themselves - three of her children have already achieved this. She is requesting this loan to purchase raw materials (fabrics) and a sewing machine which will be used to create and sell uniforms.
