Luz Elena's story

Luz Elena has been making made-to-measure and custom clothing for approximately 15 years. She is 50 years old. She has a small, adequate workshop in her house, and works every day from 8:00am until 6:00pm.

Thanks to this business, she has been able to generate the income necessary to support herself and her parents. Luz Elena wishes to buy supplies such as fabric and thread, to use for making women's shirts to sell to family members and to people she knows, and to be able to improve her sales.

Luz Elena's dream is to have a really spacious dressmaking workshop, through which she can generate several direct jobs.
