We found Soledad carrying out her daily labor of making sweaters, vests and gloves which she undertakes everyday with creativity and skillfulness. She feels very satisfied with the good results that she obtains which allow her to hire two talented young people to help her with the work. Thanks to the thirteen years that she has been in business, Soledad was able to offer peace of mind and comfort for her two loved children. She was also able to set up her workshop so that she can fill the large number of orders from her demanding clients who she satisfies with beautiful and novel garments that Soledad and her young workers offer. Currently, Soledad aims to acquire a variety of prime material (wool) to increase the volume of production of her garments with the goal of exporting them to other countries and allowing her to obtain better income. Lets support this diligent mother who, with determination and dedication, aims to get ahead.

Encontramos a Soledad realizando su labor cotidiana de confección de chompas, chalecos y guantes, actividad que con creatividad y habilidad emprende día a día y con la que se siente muy satisfecha por los buenos resultados que obtiene, permitiéndole dar trabajo a dos jóvenes talentosos que la apoyan en su labor. Gracias a los 13 años que se dedica a esta actividad, Soledad logró ofrecer tranquilidad y bienestar a sus dos amados hijos e implementar su taller para cumplir con la gran cantidad de solicitudes de sus exigentes clientes, clientes que se sienten satisfechos por las hermosas y novedosas prendas que Soledad y sus jóvenes trabajadores les ofrecen. Actualmente Soledad pretende adquirir variedad de materia prima (lana) para aumentar el volumen de producción de sus prendas con el fin de exportarlas a otros países y así obtener mejores ingresos. Apoyemos a esta diligente madre que con empeño y dedicación pretende salir adelante.
