Marcelina
My name is Marcelina and I live in San Francisco, Tlachichilpa. I am 46 years old and was widowed a couple of years ago. The house where I live with my three children was left to me by my husband. I see my situation as being a little difficult because my children want to continue studying so that they can have a better opportunity of getting work and I want to help them to achieve their goals. For this reason, I work selling shoes. I sell the shoes through a catalog and I also sell second-hand shoes in the street market which takes place in our village every Sunday. This is how I help my children as best I can. I can't always support them as I would really like. One of the difficulties I face is that I have to sell my merchandise on credit. My customers don't always have enough money to pay cash and so I have to wait two weeks for them to get their wages before they pay me the rest of the money they owe me. I would like my business to work better and I would like to be lucky enough to get ahead in life.

Mi nombre es Marcelina, yo vivo en San Francisco tlachichilpa, tengo 46 años de edad enviude hace un par de años, la casa donde vivo con mis tres hijos me la dejo mi marido, si la veo mi situación un poco dificil porque mis hijos quieren seguir estudiando para que tengan mejores oportunidades de tener un trabajo y yo los quiero ayudar a cumplir sus metas, por eso me dedico a vender zapatos, los vendo por catalogo y tambien los vendo de segunda mano en el tianguis que se pone cada domingo een el pueblo, de esta forma es como ayudo a mis hijos con lo que se puede porque no siempre puedo apoyarlos como uno quisiera, los dasfios que voy teniendo es que habeces tengo que fiar la mercancía, no siempre los clientes tienen para pagar todo de contado y los tengo que esperar a que cobren quincena para que me den el resto, yo quisiera que el negocio funcionara de una mejor manera y tubiera mucha suerte para salir adelante.
