Maisa is a very pleasant and persevering 23 year old woman. Originally from the town of Cuzco, she has lived in the city of Juliaca for the last two years. She finished secondary school and immediately sought to work to earn her own income and to pay for her higher qualifications. After saving enough money, she decided to open a small soft drinks outlet as the space available for this purpose was located in a very strategic and commercial city of Juliaca.

The desire of this young woman is to increase the stock of her merchandise, with the aim of substantially increasing her sales and to continue her current business.
