Luz Elena De Fatima's story

61 years old, Luz Elena makes a living creating garments of clothing for third parties. She has more than 35 years of experience in this business and opened her own shop thanks to her father, who gave her her first sewing machine. Right now, Luz Elena wants to start her own line of pajamas and continue helping financially with the costs of living and the schooling of the youngest of her three children. She needs to purchase supplies like fabric and thread to begin her new line, with which she hopes to be able to increase her customer base, create her brand, and improve her quality of life.
