Sa ngayon, mayroon siyang mahigit 30 patahian sa probinsya ng Cavite. Nagsimula sa pagkakaroon ng dalawang unit ng makina at apat na mananahi noong 2010 hanggang sa ito ay lumago sa kasalukuyan nitong kalagayan.
Ayon kay G. Barerra, nais niyang magkaroon ng embroidery machine at printing silk machine upang makapaggawa ng mga bagong produkto tulad kasuotan pambata, atbp. Nais pa niyang matugunan ang kanilang hinaharap na pangangailangan sa pananahi.

The Philippines lost a great woman in science a year ago when Dr. Maripaz Lawang Perez passed on last March 31, 2021. She was the former Undersecretary for Regional Operations, Assistant Secretary for R & D and Technology Transfer, Director of DOST Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI), and has been championing STI solutions with the DOST-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD) since 1977. Aside from Usec. Perez’s loyalty and unwavering commitment, her works, and legacy continue to touch lives and shape the society. She enabled the metamorphosis of the Small Enterprises Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) from being Usec. Tesoro’s brainchild to a realized DOST's strategy that encourages and assists Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in adopting technology and innovations, enhancing their operational efficiency, boosting productivity, and promoting competitiveness. This program has helped many businesses and enterprises write their rags-to-riches success stories.
