View original language description ↓
Day after day, Adela gets up early so that she can organize and tend her small business, formed barely two years ago. With the idea of generating extra income, she jumped on the idea of opening a small shop, something moreover that she already had experience doing. She worked before as a clerk in a store. That was the seed of the idea and she started off small, but always with the hope of growing and moving ahead. She and her husband are now the parents of three school-age children. Her husband is a factory worker and, happily, he completely supports her. In the future, she hopes to keep on growing her business and making it bigger and bigger but she knows that she needs a strong base to succeed.

Translated from Spanish by Jere Wiseman, Kiva Volunteer

Día a día Adela se levanta por las mañanas para poder arreglar y atender su pequeño negocio, el cual tiene apenas dos años de formado. Con la idea de contar con un ingreso adicional se animo a abrir una bodega. Porque además ya tenía cierta experiencia en ello; anteriormente ella estuvo trabajando en una tienda como vendedora. Es así que decidió empezar y lo hizo de a pocos, pero siempre con la esperanza de seguir creciendo y progresando.
Actualmente ella y su esposo son padres de tres niños que se encuentran en edad escolar. Su esposo trabaja como obrero en una fábrica, felizmente él la apoya en todo. En un futuro ella espera seguir creciendo en su negocio, implementarlo y hacerlo más grande, pero ella sabe que solo a base de esfuerzo lo podrá lograr.
