Mariela's story

Mrs. Mariela Portillos is 34 years old and married to 52 year old Mr. Leonardo Mareco. They have one 4 year old son.

Mariela began this business with the capital she acquired by selling a car back in 2003. She bought various sewing machines and fabric with which she decided to open her own seamstress shop. Today she has various people that work with her and a well established clientele.

Mariela will invest this loan in buying more merchandise and in this way be able to meet the demands of her customers.
