Graciela's story

Graciela is 24 years old and single. She lives with her mother in a village in Tela Atlántida. She is a very enterprising person.

She started her business selling costume jewelry like earrings, chains, and watches to her school colleagues at the university. As that went very well for her she started to buy perfume, lotion, fine jewelry, clothes, beauty products, and other types of merchandise that she has orders for. This has generated income to cover her household expenses. It has also covered all of her university expenses; she is about to graduate.

She buys some merchandise that is from abroad, and she sells it for a better price. This is all done by order.

Her goal is to finish her education and to have a store that is well-established with merchandise in a place that is strategic for sales.
