Gema De Los Angeles's story

The initiative and force of will that Gema de los Ángeles devoted her clothing store have made it a success. Upon entering the store, customers find well-organized displays and high-quality products, which always motivate them to return for another visit. Gema is 27 years old, married, and the mother of a son. She opened her store with the money she'd saved from a settlement she received when her last job ended. Gema hopes to continue managing the store effectively so that it will continue to grow. Gema is applying for a loan so that she can increase sales at the store. She needs to purchase children's and adult clothing, as well as jewelry, handbags, makeup, beauty products, and other merchandise. Gema is confident that this financing will help her achieve her goal of making the store more successful, expanding her inventory so that she can meet customer demand, boost sales, and earn higher income. Gema's son is her greatest motivation for her work; she wants to ensure his good health and provide for his education. She and her husband devote their lives to their son's welfare. Gema plans to one day open a second store in another department, near the capital.
