Berta Georgina
Mrs. Berta Georgina N. is 55 years old, single, and has three children. She was able to give her children an education with the income she earned working at the Agricultural College and running her own business selling clothes, shoes and household appliances. She has run this business for four years, and it is located in a neighbourhood known as El Calvario in Nacaome City. Her clients, however, come from various neighbourhoods in the city and over the years she has built up a faithful client base. The products she sells are imported from North America, where she has relatives who make purchases for her and send them by sea. This way, Mrs N. gets her products more slowly, but she is able to make a better profit when she sells them.
