Patricia's story

Patricia is 36 years old. For many years she was dedicated to sewing typical women clothing ("güipiles"), but this activity did not leave her with many earnings and it took her a long time to recover her investment. Since four years ago her business has been making and selling wool clothes and pants for children. This business gives her better earnings and, thanks to God, has helped her improve her life. She unfortunately could not study but she is aware of how important it is for her kids to be able to study and succeed in the future. Presently, she has six children. Her dream is to improve their economic situation, improve their living conditions, and economically assist her husband, who works in agriculture.
