Oscarito s designs and produces clothing and uniforms for infants and children as well as embroidery for corporate promotional materials. Oscarito s has one retail store and a small factory in Masaya Nicaragua.rnrnAida Mayorga started Oscarito s with a $100 microfinance loan. Fifteen years later Aida and her husband Oscar Garcia employ over fifty people in their clothing manufacturing business. As Aida expands Oscarito s both its product line and its distribution channels she remains committed to growing the number of quality jobs made available particularly for single mothers lacking formal education as well as young men that were addicted to drugs. In addition Aida looks for ways to offer benefits beyond the norm including low interest credit food work training for people in recovery from drug addiction and more!rnrnWhen we had the opportunity to visit the factory we were very impressed by the comfortable and safe work environment as well as the happy employees. Clothing factories (maquiladoras) have a poor reputation in the region for overworking employees and harmful work environments. Oscarito s who is competing with these same companies offers a wonderful alternative.
