Adrian’s Story: Carving a Small Business from the Ground Up


Adrian is from Morelos, Mexico, just south of Mexico City. When he was a child, he started dreaming about owning his own business. “My mom and my dad had a small business making school uniforms in Mexico,” said Adrian. “It was really small. They were only making a little money from the uniforms. And I said ‘When I get to the United States, I’m going to work really hard and I’m going to buy some [sewing] machines and I’m going to make my own business’.”
