Angela's story

Angela, 66, lives in the city of Leon. She has been working for more than 20 years, selling cosmetics, clothing and a variety of merchandise. She has 6 children who are all independent. She started this business with a friend who was traveling out of the country to buy a variety of merchandise to sell in the city. Later she started working independently, building her customer base over time. This is how she gradually made her way into the world of commerce, and with this business she managed to educate and support her children.
