Luisa Piedad
Luisa began with a crate selling paper and order forms in the downtown of the city. Little by little her income improved. She managed to put in a store in the front part of her house. With the help of her daughter, who is her right hand in the business, she works from 8:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. They do binding, laminating, printing, phone cards, and computing.

One of her difficulties is the physical space in her place. Luisa has four children but all are adults. She has many hopes for her business. This is why she's going to buy paper and office supplies. One of her goals is to leave the business stable for her children and grandchildren.
