Rafaela Catalina works selling women's clothing. Her business is located in the market. With the help of her brother, she was able to buy more merchandise, and this is how her small business started.

She is a responsible and very hard-working person, and she has good references. She started selling clothes about three years ago. Her wish is to have a larger premises in order to serve her customers better and to satisfy the needs of every customer.
