Esteban has a sewing workshop where he makes sweatsuits which he sells at a locale in Yacuiva. He also takes them to Brazil. Esteban started when he was very young, working in the area and saving. Little by little, he was able to set up his sewing workshop. As in all businesses, it has its seasons of high demand during the year. Esteban also has regular customers that keep his workshop busy. It is worth noting that he added to his workshop with a computerized bordering machine. With it, he is demonstrating his workshop's growth. With the money from the loan, he will buy fabric in large quantities. It is going very well in his business but he wants to make more types of clothing and be able to hire workers and offer opportunities to other young people who can learn the trade. He is a young person who really wants to get ahead and is grateful to the institution for the support it has offered.
