Bertha Angela
Bertha is a fighter who has succeeded together with her family. She works selling wallets and shoes as a street vendor. Bertha began this work because she needed to increase her income, as her husband's job as a security guard did not pay enough. She travels the city selling her products from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. One of her biggest worries is the distance from her house to the city, because she lives in an area outside of Libertad. She hopes that someday there will be a public transport line that can bring her to the city without problems. With the loan she is asking for, Bertha will purchase products to sell, hoping to earn more and improve her quality of life.
