Luisa Teresa
At her sixty-seven years, Luisa has more than thirty years with her business: making clothing. Her career began after her studies with a company. She brought her own machine to the company's local shop and worked there for a time. Nevertheless, this job was located far from her home. At night she spent more than three hours commuting home. As a result, she was encouraged to start her own clothes-making business.

So then she began her business in her home and now she has six machines because sometimes the orders are so large that she needs the help of other people for her work. Still, at this time, her shop is being remodeled so Luisa is dedicating most of her time to her other occupation, promotor of a private school.

Two years ago, Luisa joined forces with other women and founded a private school. This is what she will occupy herself with in the future. Now, before classes begin, she is making uniforms for the students.

A sus sesenta y siete años Luisa tiene más de treinta en su negocio: confección y arreglo de ropa. Su carrera empezó, tras sus estudios, en una empresa. Llevó su propia máquina al local de la empresa y trabajó allí durante un tiempo. No obstante, este trabajo quedaba muy lejos de su casa, por las noches se demoraba más de tres horas para regresar a casa, así que se animó a empezar su propio negocio de confección.
Entonces comenzó su comercio en casa, y ahora ya tiene seis máquinas, por que a veces los pedidos son tantos que necesita la ayuda de otras personas en su trabajo. Sin embargo, en este momento su taller está siendo remodelado, así que Luisa está dedicando la mayoría de su tiempo a su otra ocupación, promotora de un colegio particular.
Hace dos años Luisa se juntó a otras señoras y fundó un colegio particular. Esto es en lo ella se ocupará en su futuro. Ahora, antes que empiecen las clases, está confeccionando las uniformes para los alumnos.
