Shirley Aracely's story

Shirley is a 34-year old single mother who has one son. She began working when she was very young. Her parents were an important mainstay in her life; they instilled principles and values in her. They taught her that she must be principally responsible and in this way, she developed herself in business. The type of business to which she has dedicated herself is clothing sales. She does the work by herself. One of the ways she does sales is by taking advantage of the opportunity to offer her goods when she meets up with her friends which ensures that she already has loyal customers and is very popular in the area because of her business. With the loan, she wants to buy men's and women's clothing. Shirley's dream is to have her own boutique and to grow in the business world..
