Paula Idalinda's story

Paula is 49 years old, single, and has a daughter. She started out by selling very little merchandise, such as colas and rice. Later on she established a grocery store in her home which now helps her to support herself and her family. Paula opens her business at 7 A.M. Her wish is to grow her business even more and restock it with more products.
