Alejandra's story

Alejandra, is from Oroquita City. She is famous for her pillow cases and curtains. She is a dressmaker. Her husband is an expert in tailoring pants and uniforms. They both agreed to continue the business as a couple. She was trained by her husband to cut and sew simple pillow cases at first. Later on, she learned different styles of cutting and tailoring.



Their primary customers are their neighbors and relatives. In order to cater for all of them, they hired an employee and paid him based on the number of items he made. Recently, she applied for PHP 14,900 to buy meters of cloth for dresses and pillow cases. In the future, she hopes that they will have a tailor shop in the heart of the city.
