Angela Del Pilar
Ángela is 31 years old. Her business is the sale of general merchandise. Three years ago, she sold only Avon products because she did not have enough capital to offer her clients all the products they needed. The clients wanted to order clothing, so she had to find a way to add that to her business.

The most important thing for Ángela is to help her three children get ahead. Her dream is to pass the business on to them, so they will have a means to survive.
