Angelina
View original language description ↓
Angelina is 42 years old and married to Mr. Miguel González, who is 46. The couple has four children, all of whom are in high school.

Angelina has two dreams: the first is to own her own supermarket, and the second is to see all of her children graduate.

Angelina began working selling merchandise imported from Argentina. During that time she learned many things, above all how to treat customers. Years later, Angelina saw a business opportunity in her neighborhood and decided to open a general store in her house. Angelina already had a group of customers who trusted her because of her previous work, all of whom supported her new business venture; this is how she went about forming a regular customer base.

The loan money will be used to buy items typical of a general store, for example, rice, pasta, milk, bread, soft drinks, cheese and eggs.
