Señora Beatriz is 22. She is married and has 2 children who are still too young for school. She and her husband rent sound systems for parties and other events, and also offer rentals of chairs, tables and linens to the different schools and special events that they attend. Today they need the loan as over time they have purchased a photocopier that is shared with a school, and now they want to start offering internet access. They have monitors and lack only the hard drive and computer technical system. This is why they asking for a loan to purchase a computer. Although they are young, they are responsible and this is not the first time that they have worked with Emprender. We have been able to see how they started selling food and then gone on to provide their audio systems rental service, photocopying and now internet access.
