Rosa Imelda
Rosa is a mother of three, who has run her family’s store for many years. She has enjoyed being a shopkeeper, because she likes interacting with her neighbors. About a year ago, she decided she needed to try and modernize her business. At that time, she was using only a notebook to register sales and purchases, and she found it impossible to calculate her profits accurately.

With Tiendatek, Rosa says she now better understands her business and consequently makes better decisions on everything, from knowing which products to order, to which suppliers to work with. Rosa thinks that, thanks to her hard work, love of sales, and Tiendatek, she can grow a successful business.
