Maria Sonia's story

Señora Maria Sonia, who is 55 years old, works in her own workshop, set up in the living room of her home, where she principally makes curtains, tablecloths, and quilts. She has been doing this work her entire life, and with it she has generated her own income to sustain herself and to help with the household finances. She had some difficult times because of the winter, since her orders diminished drastically, so now she needs to buy new fabrics and other items that will allow her to make her products to sell. Thus she will reactivate her business and improve her quality of life and that of her parents.
