Maria Rubiela's story

Maria Rubiela is 51 years old and has had the obligation of working since her husband died and left her with 3 children. Maria Rubiela works mainly selling clothing for women such as blouses, pants, shoes, accessories, and other things. She has always dreamed of establishing her own store to sell her merchandise in the town of San Rafael to the east of Antioquia, to successfully increase her income in order to be able to give a better quality of life to her 3 children. She wants her children to be educated and this is why she works so hard every day in search of sales, to bring in enough income to allow them to attend good schools. Maria Rubiela, in search of a way to increase her business, wants to buy merchandise that will permit her to have a better variety to offer her clients so that she can increase her sales and income.
