Alicia Magali's story

Alicia is a single mother of two school-aged little ones. She is a mother who very much enjoys making dessert for her children. Currently she lives in the city of Pisco, a place that has been rising up over the years after the terrible 2007 earthquake. You can still see some consequences there of what happened that year.

Alicia works selling groceries, tubers, and beer, among other products that allow her to generate the income her family needs. She works from 7 in the morning until 9 at night, time in which she attends to the customers of her area. Alicia has managed to make her store known in the area where she lives because she already has many years of experience in this type of business, which she learned thanks to her mother.

Currently she wants to be able to buy more tuna, eggs, cookies, and bags of sugar and of rice, among other things. This will allow her to equip her business, attract new customers, and, of course, increase her profits.

Alicia wants to save enough to be able to have a new business in the center of the city of San Clemente and so improve her income much more, to be able to give her small children everything they need.
