Karla Erica
Érica is a dynamic and very happy young woman who greatly enjoys working. After finishing high school, her parents enrolled her in a business engineering degree at the Universidad Mayor de San Simón. However, she was not able to finish her studies because she is used to traveling. She always accompanied her father, which is how she learned about the business of buying and selling.

For three years, Érica has been working on a regular basis in trade. She buys rice during the harvest season and sells it throughout the year. She also trades sugar and cement, which she sells to the inhabitants of San Julián. She likes to work and earn her own money, which is why she is putting plenty of effort into growing her business. This is why she needs a loan to buy more merchandise.
