A Change for Miguel's Mom

Nov 08, 2016
Miguel, 10, is a sponsored child in Dulce Tierra Nuevo Sol. His dad is a bricklayer and until recently, his mom Leydi stayed at home.

When World Vision offered an entrepreneurship course in sewing last year, Leydi was one of several women to join. Today, she and four other women have a workshop where they make dresses for retail sale.

The women work together to secure jobs, learn new techniques and come up with designs. It's hard to believe that just a few months ago, they had no knowledge of sewing whatsoever"and were actually afraid of the machines!

With the extra source of income from his mom's business, Miguel's basic needs are being met and the family's standard of living has improved. Help a child like Miguel. Become a sponsor today.
