Maria Alicia
María, 55, is married and has two children. She is a shopkeeper and she works tending a small grocery store. She started this business eight years ago because she didn't want to depend on a boss. Her idea was to be the owner of a business that would allow her to earn a daily income and be near her children. This is why, with the help of her husband, she started selling candies, crackers, and snacks. These were the first products that she started with in the small store. With time, she has added more variety and in this way, she helps with the household expenses. She needs to buy more basic grains, oil, oats, snacks, bread, detergents, bleach, soap, cosmetics, and canned goods. One of her next goals is to sell telephone recharges and ice cream treats. Her idea for the future is to turn her small grocery store into a convenience store.
