Urania Maria's story

30-year-old Urania lives in the city of León. She has a 5-year-old son. Urania's business is running a grocery store in her home. She started this business with the help of her grandmother who used to sell general merchandise. She was the one who gave her the idea of selling sodas in order to have her own business and not have to be dependent on her husband. In fact, now it is her husband who helps her with her sales. Urania has gradually bought merchandise for her store and now she has been in the business for four years. However, she says that she needs to fill her store with a greater variety of products. For this reason, she is taking out a loan to buy basic grains, cleaning products, dairy products, clothes, toys and cosmetics as she would like to have a well-stocked store and invest in setting up a small clothes and toy store so that she can diversify her business.
