María De Los Ángeles
Upon entering María’s business, numerous tires cover her office as if they were works of art that adorn her place. The smell of rubber fills the room, and María instantly has a friendly smile.

She is 50 years old, and she sells tires. She is married and has three independent children. At the start of these 12 productive years she undertook her own business selling used tires at retail. She found an opportunity and took the risk in spite of not having gone to the university.

She is now a wholesale vendor at the eastern market. María has help from her sister, her son-in-law, and some remittances sent to her. She dreams of taking her products to different fairs in the country so that people know her and that she brings quality material.

In order to do so, she needs to invest more in her business. That is why she is requesting a loan to buy more tires of different brands in order to vary her products. Her plans are always to get ahead with her family and to make her business grow. Therefore, she will keep investing in it.

Al entrar al negocio de María, cuantiosas llantas cubren su oficina, tal como si fueran obras de arte que adornan un lugar. El olor a hule da la bienvenida, al igual que doña María . A sus 50 años, esta comerciante de llantas está casada y tiene tres hijos independientes. Cuenta que al inicio de estos 12 productivos años, emprendió su propio negocio vendiendo llantas usadas al por menor, pues encontró la oportunidad y tomo el riesgo, a pesar de no haber llegado a la universidad. Ahora es vendedora mayorista en el mercado oriental.
María cuenta con el apoyo de su hermana, de su yerno y de algunas remesas que le mandan. Sueña con llevar su producto a distintas ferias del país, para que la gente lo conozca y se lleven un material de calidad. Para ello necesita invertir más en lo suyo, por lo que solicita un préstamo para comprar más llantas de diferentes marcas, para variar su producto. Sus planes siempre van a ser seguir adelante con su familia y hacer crecer su negocio, por lo que seguirá invirtiendo en ello.
