Mrs. C. continued a family tradition when she took charge of the furniture upholstering business founded by her father in 1963. She is the mother of two sons, who are at studying at university. The money that PRISMA will lend her will be used to buy materials to cover orders she has from clients, and part of it will be invested in remodeling her shop. She would like to build an exhibition room in which to showcase her products and increase her sales.
