Kathia Evelyn's story

Kathia is a 30-year-old mother of two children, ages 19 and 8, who are her motivation to work every day so she can give them the best she can. Kathia and her husband constantly support each other, because they know together they form the base of the family and want to each give his or her best. Her husband makes a living in construction, which allowed him to put some money aside that Kathia could use to set up the convenience store she so wanted. This helped turn Kathia into a small businesswoman without straying far from her children, since the store is in the back of her family's home. Currently she wants to purchase a refrigerator and some products for her store like rice, tuna, coffee, beverage, etc. This will allow her to increase her profits, since her customers are constantly buying more each time and she needs to have the products they most demand. She is very grateful for the support because in this way she can improve her store and grow as a successful businesswoman.
