Marina Filomena's story

Marina is 55 years old. She is a hard-working woman who has developed the craft of sewing and tailoring over the long years of her life. Little by little, and with dedication, she has been running a sewing workshop in a part of her home.

Marina works every day, starting early in the morning, to finish the orders that her customers place. She makes shirts, pants, outfits, etc. Marina has a lot of aspirations for her business, and she would like to keep working, but in order to do that and to increase her income, she needs to purchase an overlock sewing machine, thread, and fabric.
