From apprentice to entrepreneur

Communications Office SENA Regional Santander

Looking for the improvement of life quality, Dina Luz Zapata García, an apprentice Kitchen Technician, left her hometown four years ago, which makes her an example of courage and perseverance.
When she arrived to Santander, she enrolled in the training program taught by the SENA Business and Tourism Services Center in Bucaramanga.
This step allowed her to learn everything necessary to start the path of entrepreneurship and with lots of effort she was able to start her own business: a restaurant that has generated employment for three-woman head of their family.

“I joined SENA and I gave myself the opportunity to have my own restaurant. Thanks to the Institution and to my instructors for giving me support and encouraging me to move forward”, says Dina Luz, with the smile that characterizes her.

This enterprising apprentice is proud of what she has accomplished and is looking to continue learning to further advance her purpose of providing a better future to her family.

“This is a message for women: we can move forward and fight for our dreams. SENA does not discriminate, SENA supports”, highlights Dina, who hopes to complete her training and work for the growth of her business.
