Carmen Alicia's story

Carmen is a hardworking and honest woman, who built up her home with a lot of effort and sacrifice. She is separated and is the mother of one child. She began dressmaking in 1970 and began her own shop in 2008.

She learned this skill little by little experientially. She worked in many different shops, until she decided to go off on her own to improve her family's income. Her customers are neighbors, friends, family members, and people who have been recommended. Her sales are in cash and in installments. She dedicates on average six hours a day to her business.

Her suppliers are the warehouses where they sell supplies and raw materials for dressmaking in the city center. She needs to supply herself with dressmaking materials: threads, zippers, trimming, buttons, etc., which she will need to produce without setbacks. Support her.
