We find Alejandra and her charming husband located in front of a school in the city of Ayaviri, offering a wiD. variety of sweets, cookies, sodas, etc. for sale to the students and other pedestrians in said city. Alejandra is 56 years old and her loving husband is 71. They always have been entrepreneurial and hardworking people; both are from Ayaviri. Since starting their family, they dedicated themselves to working the land, a noble enterprise that helped them educate their son who is now a professional and living independently. They retired from this labor when they found it became too physically demanding as they grew older. For this reason, they decided to invest their savings and start a business selling snacks/sweets. This activity brings them much joy, as it provides them with financial stability and peace. The wish of this humble couple is to prosper in this endeavor and, to do this, they are considering purchasing another tricycle/tram and additional products with which to expand their sales efforts. Let’s help seal the plans of this loving couple.
