Yolanda De Jesús's story

Yolanda, 46, works managing a store where she works from 8:00am until 10:00pm. She started doing this work a little while ago because her sister, who was responsible for the store previously, had health problems and could not continue working there, so Yolanda had to take over the store.

The income from the store pays the rent for the space and her household expenses for herself and her only daughter. In order to improve the stock of merchandise at the store, which is low, Yolanda needs to purchase sodas, snacks, and liquor in order to increase the stock and generate more sales so that she can improve the quality of life of herself and her daughter.
