Ms. Doris P. is 47 years old, married, and has 3 children, ages 13, 18, and 28, who study. The eldest works and is independent. Ms. P. sells food in a free trade zone. Even though she is a street vendor, she already has an established clientele. She sells food for cash and credit, but her biggest problem is not having a fixed business space. She started the business with money that she obtained from a bank. She has been in sales for 10 years now. She currently works with loans that Afodenic gives her at low interest rates in order to keep her business well-stocked with a variety of dishes to offer great customer service. In the long run, she hopes to have her own kiosk in the free trade zone in order to boost sales and reach out to more customers. She wants to help her two children with their studies.
