Maria Edelmira's story

María Edelmira is 43 years old and has an eight year old son. For eight years she has run a produce shop, which was started by her brother. He didn't enjoy the work and sold it to María Edelmira after six months.

The produce shop is very close to María Edelmira's house, which allows her to care for her son. She works from 7AM to 7PM.

María Edelmira wants to undertake some renovation on her business, such as changing the shelving and baskets, and also stock more fruits and vegetables. The renovations will improve the look of her business and make it more attractive, growing her client base and sales.

She dreams of watching her business grow and with it, being able to offer a better quality of life to her family. She hopes to buy her own house in the future.
