Maria Mercedes's story

María Mercedes Gómez P. is 28 years old and married. She has two children who still aren't school age. María makes a living selling clothing and footwear. She started this business very humbly with few items to sell, but this did not stop her from making headway and she has now 10 years of experience. Her main goal is to stay with the business and keep pushing ahead for her family. Her dream is to set up a larger store in order to provide a better service.
