Violeta Jazmin's story

Violeta is 22 years old; she has an internet café. She lives with her 2 year old son in a semi urban area called Paraíso de la flor located in an area characterized by its dirt roads and mountains.

Violeta and her mother work selling chickens but it was too tedious and difficult to keep the chickens and they decided to change businesses. With a small capital, 6 months ago they began their small internet café that Violeta manages. They work from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. providing internet, beverages and telephones for their customers. Internet service costs $ 0.50 per hour, cell phone calls are $ 0.05 per minute and beverages begin at $ 0.40 depending on the brand.

Violeta wants to continue with her business and that is why she wants to buy two computers to give better services for her customers. In the future, she would like to sell cell phones and computers.
