Angélica is 25 years old. A few years back she had very little income with which to support her family so her mom helped out by giving her a little bit of working capital to buy some stationery items.
Angélica lives in a peri-urban area which is surrounded by a salt marsh. She has been working with her mom's help to support her two children since she is separated from her husband and she supports her household. She currently sells exercise books for $1.50, pens for $0.30, markers and toys for the Christmas season. She works from 8.30am to 8.30pm.
To continue in her business, she would like to use her loan to buy display cases, toys and stationery items. In the future, she would like to buy her own home since she lives with her mom. She would also like her children to successfully complete their studies.
