ship with your best friend is the dream of many entrepreneurs. For the sisters Ivonne and Bárbara Díaz Mena, aged six and nine, respectively, it was the perfect way to start their t- shirt business: Yelloww Chop , whose added value is to screen- print drawings that they create and that other children can later color. your taste with special paint.
The girls have diversified their offer by selling promotional or gift items such as umbrellas, water flasks, backpacks and other accessories on which their drawings or customer requests can also be printed.

The company started in Guadalajara, Jalisco, in 2018 with an investment of 15,000 pesos from Betty Mena and Emmanuel Díaz, parents of the girls, who supported this idea due to the creativity shown by their daughters. On average they sell 5,000 pesos a month. The pieces are marketed among acquaintances, bazaars and through social networks.
