Isabel America's story

Isabel is a woman who dedicates her life to selling groceries and beer. She has managed to get ahead in life with her children. Her goal is that they always have everything they need, that they have the example of a persevering woman and that with strength they can constantly progress.

Isabel has experienced many difficult moments, such as earthquakes and the constant rain, that have happened in the last few months. She has been able to protect her children and earn the income that she needed to cover the daily necessities.

Currently, Isabel sells beer and groceries in a store located in her living room. She started this type of business in the area where she lives since at the time, there was nobody selling the products that she now sells.

Isabel wants to be able to buy beer, oil, sugar, rice, sodas, among other things. These products are what her customers are purchasing and they will be happy they can find everything they need in the same store. Thanks to the help she is receiving, she feels capable of succeeding and in this way she will improve the quality of life for her family so that her children may be able to work as professionals in a few years.
