Olivia Del Carmen
Olivia is a trader and she has two children. Many years ago she succeeded in opening a corner shop where she sells a variety of products.
Thanks to her husband and her children’s support, she has improved her selling service, and now, thanks to the loans obtained from this institution, she has sped up the growth pace of her activity, as when she started the amount of product she sold was small, but this has improved with Afodenic’s support.
