Angie Monserrate's story

Angie Monserrate is 20 years old. She maintains a common law relationship and her partner is a barber. She has a 2-year-old daughter. They live in a relative's house in Manta, a place that is characterized by having beautiful beaches and especially for offering exquisite food.

That is why she sells makeup and shoes by catalog and Avon beauty products, cosmetics and perfumes. Angie Monserrate has a small space in her home that permits her to offer her merchandise to her fixed customers, allowing credit and collecting weekly. She has been in this line of work for three years which allows her to improve her quality of life.
