Las Martínez Group's story

This group is called "Las Martinez," and it is made up of 4 women who have a desire to succeed.

One of the members is Nathaly Soledad, better known as Nathaly. She is 19 years old and has a silk-screen business (putting designs on T-shirts). Nathaly says that what she likes about her job is making the designs for the prints, because it allows her to put her creativity into practice, which she enjoys. Fortunately, she is able to do her work from her house, although one of her dreams is to have her own store and become well-known for her work and the care she puts into her prints. Nathaly mentions that the characteristics that a person needs to do this type of job include: knowing how to letter, having creativity, and being friendly to the customers so that they will also recommend your business to others. Also, Nathaly is considered to be a special person for the effort she puts into her projects so that they will be of the best quality, and most of all for her hopes of improving and excelling with her business. Nathaly asked for a loan to buy more paints for lettering, sewing machines and a computer to make her designs. The other members of the group are: Cecelia Nohemi, who sells hand-made items, Yaneth Lourdes, who sells shoes through a catalog, and Merab Aide, who also sells shoes through a catalog. They thank the Vision Foundation for helping the young people who want to have their own businesses and expand them over time.
