Twalyn
With a 21,000 peso loan Twalyn has been able to buy one sack of rice, one can of oil, pasta, beans, milk and soft-drinks for her grocery store. Twalyn is single living with her parents. She’s never liked the idea of working for others which is why she used the savings she earned working as an employee to buy this small grocery store. She’s been a business owner for two years and although there have been some trying times because the economy is very unstable she feels happy with the decision she made.

She’s gone through the learning curve in the time she’s been in business so her future plan is to start introducing a wider variety of merchandise to offer her customers aiming at increasing her income and strengthen the store financially.

Con un préstamo de 21,000 pesos, Twalyn ha podido comprar 1 saco de arroz, 1 lata de aceite, pasta, frijoles, leche y refrescos para su tienda de comestibles. Twalyn es soltera y vive con sus padres. Nunca le ha gustado la idea de ser empleada, por esto con los ahorros obtenidos en su tiempo de empleada compró esta pequeña tienda de venta de comestibles. Hace 2 años que es propietaria de su propio negocio, y aunque han habido momentos difíciles, pues la economía está muy inestable, se siente contenta de haber tomado esta decisión.
Con el tiempo que tiene con el negocio entiende que ya pasó el proceso de curva de aprendizaje, por lo que sus planes futuros son comenzar a introducir mayor variedad y oferta de mercancía a sus clientes, con el objetivo de aumentar sus ingresos y fortalecer financieramente la tienda
