Driven by her desires to get ahead and her great desire to continue with the family business, Elsa decided to dedicate herself to the making of wool sweaters by machine. With the support of her parents and siblings, they have formed a small company that now has prospered quite a bit. Right now they are focusing on making school sweaters and when that season ends they will focus on making sweaters for women and men of diverse styles. She is always aware of the latest styles and designs and wants to take advantage of this period that has just recently started to increase her production.
