Juana María's story

Doña Juana is a merchant who sells Avon cosmetics. In addition, she sells fried foods, like tacos and enchiladas, and natural sodas. She started the Avon sales on her own initiative and to help her husband with the household expenses. Previously, doña Juana made her living selling shell-fish door to door. Nevertheless, she has found a way to develop a business right in her home. Her business requires a financial pool that would allow her to expand and improve her customer service. Doña Juana is married and takes care of one son, who is currently in secondary school.
