Angelica Maria
Angelica Maria is 36, married, and has a small workshop for making embroidered blouses, skirts etc. She and her husband started the business together approximately 12 years ago. Both learned this trade when they were young, and when they married, they joined their experience and motivation in order to strive together for the sake of their future household.

Angélica travels every weekend to deliver 100 blouses in various styles, colors, and sizes to various parts of her municipality, and mostly to the local market.

Her greatest wish is to grow her client base and continue being a source of employment, as she presently has six employees and the help of her eldest son. She needs working capital to buy raw materials such as cones of thread by the case, in order to continue working hard.
