Her mother taught her the business as she needed a means of sustenance to help cover the cost of her home. She is very much in demand as most customers know that she makes very good quality clothing.

This is not the first time she has requested funding from the Fundación, as it has provided much support to her business. The funding will be invested in the purchase of thread, scissors, needles and fabrics. Her dream is to continue with this business activity.
