Manuel, Juliet’s husband, is a construction laborer. He supports his wife’s decision to manage her own business. He believes that if his wife can procure capital for starting up her business, she has the capacity and ability to make it grow and become profitable. He knows that she is motivated by the desire to see her children happy and well-educated. Both Manuel and Juliet would like to see the children eventually graduate from college, an opportunity that they themselves did not have.
Juliet intends to purchase inventory items for her store. This will include foodstuffs, beverages, grocery items, and basic commodities.
