She makes blouses, dresses, pants, and shirts, among others, all from her tailoring workshop. She has had this business for one and a half years, and it has given her a lot of experience in production, which allows her to obtain better earnings. She is very well-known and already has many customers who prefer her because of the quality of her clothing, her good prices, and her excellent service.

Mariam is an active woman, dedicated to her work, with dreams of getting ahead. She is always on the lookout for new opportunities that will allow her to achieve success. Every day she gives her maximum effort because she knows that only in this way will she reach her objective.
