Candida Rosa's story

Mrs. Cándida dedicates herself to the sale of products by catalog, such as cosmetics, perfumes, creams, and various lines of treatments.

She sells them for cash and on credit, and she has four years experience in this work. She is a traveling sales person; she looks for her customers to offer them products, and they pay her either in cash or on credit in two installments.

She began her business with her husband's support. Before that, she was a homemaker. When she didn't want to continue doing that, her husband helped her start her business with c$ 3000 in capital. She has a school-age daughter who is her reason for fighting to get ahead.
