Beatriz Elena's story

Beatriz Elena is a 47-year-old married woman and mother of one son. She currently works sewing for third persons, she’s been doing this for six years after taking clothes-making courses. She’s a hardworking, enterprising woman who puts in a hard day's work every day in order to fill customer orders and earn income to support her home.

She wants to use the loan she’s asking from the Corporación to service her sewing machines and to buy supplies (thread, fabric, elastic, and buttons) at wholesale to take advantage of the discounts they offer her so that she can have supplies on hand needed to fill her orders on time. Her greatest dream is to make her business grow so that she can offer employment to mothers who are heads of household and to improve her and her family’s quality of life.
