Vanessa, 30, lives in an urban area named Guasmo, notable for the majority of its inhabitants running informal businesses.
From a young age she has lived in a world surrounded by groceries, since her family had a store. When she grew up, she decided to follow in their footsteps and have a store. Little by little with work she bought some groceries and she kept them in the front part of her house. Now she works from 7:00am until 9:00pm every day.
To continue supplying her store she wants to buy at first rice, oil, and sugar. In the future she wants to grow her business and have a stationery store.
