Angela Melida
Ángela is 41 years old and lives in a house of her own, together with her husband and children. She sells clothes from door to door in various areas where she is well-known for the quality of her products, and she also sometimes sells them at her house, since her neighbours are among her loyal customers. She has been in this line of work for many years and is thus very experienced. Her neighbours agree on her personal and professional qualities, stating that she is very hard-working, responsible, and charismatic. Ángela's life revolves around her family, especially her children, whom she cites as her main source of inspiration to keep fighting for every day: she wants, above all, to give them a better life. Ángela has many loyal customers already, which is why she chose to invest in her business by buying more clothes to sell, in order to always have products in stock, such as jeans, shirts, and women's clothing. Thus, she approached field partner INTEGRAL for a loan to make said investment. She trusts that God will help her take advantage of this opportunity to keep providing her children with an education that will enable them to have a better life in the future.
