Yrma
View original language description ↓
When her husband made the decision to leave the city to work for a well-known business in their country, Yrma decided to begin working in embroidery at her beloved mother's workshop. With eagerness, and with the important help and advice of her dear children, little by little, she has been able to improve her technique and color combinations for her beautiful embroidery. Thanks to this initiative, business has increased, and she has moved her own workshop into her humble abode where her main associates are her two small children. With this loan of $775, she would like to buy cloth and thread for a her shop, to give work to many mothers who, like her, wish to put their efforts toward creating beautiful pieces.
