Emelia
Emelia has been selling handicrafts for four years. She really likes her business because it provides good earnings, and allows her to do what she likes. She has three children: two daughters, María del Pilar, 15, and Guadalupe Yasmin, 9 and a son, José Manuel who is 16. She is 34, and happily married to Amado, who is 37.

She is happy because her business provides her with good earnings, and allows her to do what she likes best, which is weave. She has asked for the loan to buy thread, needles, ribbons, and cloth for making huipils (traditional garment, consisting of a rectangular piece of cloth that is folded and stitched at the sides), coats and blouses.

One of her dreams is to keep doing embroidery, and that her clothing continue to sell as it has up to now. She thanks the Foundation for the support it has given her to move forward and succeed in the future.
