Geoconda Elizabeth
Ms. Geoconda sells clothes and cosmetics, and during the weekends she makes soup to earn more income. She has been selling these products for six years, and she started with her own savings from her previous work as a domestic employee. What she wanted most was her own business, and thanks to her own efforts and the loans from Afodenic she established the sale of clothes; this is her ninth cycle. She is 34 years old and lives in the Hialeah neighborhood with her two children and her husband, who makes cabinets and helps her with everything. With this loan she will invest in purchasing clothes and cosmetics as she already has some orders. Her plans are to have better profits to keep building her house and to be able to give her children a decent home.
