Evangelina
View original language description ↓
The buying and selling of american apparel has been a good business and has provided a good income for Señora Evangelina who's a hard-working and dedicated mother. She's always worked hard to make sure that her family, composed of 4 kids and her husband, is well-taken care of.

She's from the district of Pucara and decided to move to the city of Juliaca about 25 years ago. She began by selling snacks and sweets and drinks from door to door, but the money was not enough to help her husband to take care of the family's expenses and foremost the children's school expenses. This is why she decided to start a business selling used clothing. Thanks to her perseverance and good luck, the business is running very well. Doña Evangelina would like to expand her business and increase her inventory. She hopes you can help her in achieving her goal.
