Ada Marina's story

Ada G. is 42. She has a basic goods stores. Before that she had a candy store. She sold very little, and one day she proposed setting up her own mini market.

This has been going well, and she is very happy to have her own business. Together with her husband they have fought to be able to offer their support to their children and their home. She is very grateful to all of the people that have helped her in her life.

She wants her store to be bigger to be able to have a more tranquil life with her husband.
