Juana's story

Juana, 49, is a good, kind, very enterprising woman who isn’t afraid of the difficulties fate places before her since she was able to raise her only daughter by herself giving her education and the necessary care. She now lives with her and her two grandchildren in her own house where every day they share together the desire and the will to get ahead and have a better quality of life.

Juana’s work consists in designing and sewing articles of clothing. She makes her own designs and also repair items her customers request since the trust she’ll do a good job. She has a small workshop at home and she works from there. She started the business 15 years ago doing simple jobs and the experience she’s gained now makes it possible for her to create more complex items giving them good finishing touches and personalized details. She works alone and is more than happy to do what she loves. She’s doing very well because she has many customers who seek her out often. At the beginning she didn’t feel very useful at home but decided to start a business and now she’s very happy because her work has allowed her to live her life with a degree of tranquility. Now, she wants to work more to make her business grow.
