Gema Matilde's story

Señora Gema is 31 years old. She is the single mother to one 10 year old child who attends school. They live in Los Angeles de Colon, a place characterized by people who are hardworking, enterprising, humble, and charismatic.

She generates the income to cover household expenses and to provide an example to her child that in spite of any difficulties that arise in life, one must learn to keep moving forward. She is a merchant who sells Esika L'bel products (costume jewelry, perfumes and colognes, purses and wallets.) Her manner of selling is from home, or she shows her merchandise to her friends and neighbors. She doesn't have a fixed schedule but she works every day. She will invest the loan in the purchase of perfumes, purses, necklaces, and eyeglasses, among other items.

Her dream is to be a successful business woman.
