Sara Magdalena's story

Sara is an enterprising 34 year-old woman who saw the need to start her own business so that she could contribute to the household income, because due to the economic crisis the cost of living has been rising each day. She works with her sister from 7am until 3pm making food and going out in the neighborhood selling clothing. The competition is stiff, but she doesn't lose heart. They each have 2 children aged 15 and 9 who are in public school. Sara is married to Jorge, who works as an employee for a company. She wants a loan to purchase more merchandise and clothing so that she can have her own store that carries her name.
