Three years ago, Nestor saved up to open his own shop. He has always enjoyed selling but has found managing his business challenging. He used to do his accounting with pen and paper and found it difficult to control his inventory and know how much he was making. He purchased aTiendatek because he thinks it can help alleviate that part of his work so that he can concentrate on improving his services, getting more customers, and making more sales. He hopes it will also allow him to spend more time with his four children and enjoying his favorite past-times.
