Yessenia Del Socorro
Yesenia, 35, lives in the city of Granada and has two children, ages 18 and 17. She received an elementary education and works as a seamstress who also does hand embroidery.

She learned the trade at a very young age because she used to watch her mother sewing every day and selling her products. When her mother would go out to sell the clothing she had made Yesenia would sit at the sewing machine and practice until she learned how to sew. At age 15, she began working alongside her mother.

Now she has her own clientele and, thanks to her business, is able to support her mother and her children. She specializes in handmade embroidery and makes the typical figures that are so colorful and attract the attention of foreigners visiting the city. This is how she earns a living.

She is in need of raw materials such as fabric, silk, and different colored thread. One of the plans she has is to exhibit her goods at fairs and markets to attract more customers. She believes her embroidery is an art created with a lot of love and talent.
