Solo's story

Solo is an energetic and resourceful 35-year old woman. Her husband is a sheet-metal worker (a salaried employee). They have three children who are 7, 12, and 14 years of age. All children are in school. Solo has been keeping a grocery store for 15 years. In addition, since four years ago, she also started selling sandals. Her parents are from the countryside; she grew up in their village and lived there until she got married. They were doing agricultural work (raising livestock and growing crops). Solo manages her business by herself and finds the collaboration with CEFOR very promising. Her goal is to build a large concrete house in order to use it as both a store and her living quarters. At present, she is still renting the house she lives in, and her store is just a provisional stand without walls.
