Saucito 2 Group's story

Simona is 54 years old and is a very hardworking woman. She is married, and her husband Octaviano is employed by the department of public education. They have six children, but only one of them, their daughter Brenda, is still living with them and is currently in the fourth semester of a chemistry course. Brenda is there for them when they need her most.

She sells Telcel products such as phones, covers, chargers and pre-paid cards. She has been in this business for three years and wants to expand it a little; one of her goals is to open other branches closer to where she lives.
