Ysabel's story

Ysabel M. Riveros is 65 years old and has 4 children, all of whom are independent and have their own families. She has been a seamstress for 40 years and has developed this skill through many different working situations. She worked for others in the early stages of her vocation and launched her own business 20 years ago. After working for some time as an employee in a clothing factory, Ysabel was able to buy a sewing machine and in this way begin working independently. Through the years, she was able to start her own little sewing workshop.

She invested the credit that she received from Fundación Paraguaya in improving her workspace, which with the growth of her business became too small. Ysabel is grateful for the support that Fundación Paraguaya has offered her.
