La Concepción Group's story
Eva is 44 years and is married to Carlos. Together they have a family with three children. Eva has a sewing workshop where she works every day with her husband and one additional person that she employs. The business was begun thanks to support received from the government, though at first there were many difficulties due to a lack of investment. Nonetheless, with VF México she found support to buy her sewing machines and improve the business. With the new loan, they will buy fabric, thread, elastic, and buttons, etc. for making uniforms for 21 schools. * The photograph was taken in the business. Eva is the one wearing a brown sweater.
