Luz Estella's story
Luz is a dedicated and hard-working micro-entrepreneur. Her field of work is sewing her own line of pajamas. Everything began more than 15 years ago when she began learning the seamstress trade in an empirical manner, and now, at the age of 57, she has her own workshop. She works every day, and her strength is making pajamas and t-shirts. In this way she intends to generate the resources to help her husband with the economic burden of the household and be able to support her young children. The loan that she is applying for will be invested in the purchase of sewing supplies such as fabric, thread, buttons, and fasteners, among other items, to stock her workshop and allow her to increase her production. Luz dreams of continuing to strengthen her workshop and having a better level of production every day in order to generate employment opportunities and improve the quality of life of her family as well as that of the people who daily influence her work.
