Bertha Sofia
Bertha is 43 years old and she has three children. She had managed to build a very profitable business for her and her family. Before coming to EDAPROSPO, her sales were lower than what they are today.

She runs a minimarket and a liquor store 24-7. She is very lucky as her home has a great location, so her business is very well-attended. Some times, there are her very own customers who have given her ideas about what items to sell. Serving the needs of her customers is what’s making her business grow.

Her husband is a textile worker in a factory. Together they managed to finish building their home and to provide their children with a good education. She would like to diversify her business in order to be able to fully satisfy her more frequent customer’s needs.

Siendo madre de tres hijos y con tan solo cuarentaitres años, Bertha ha logrado construir un negocio rentable para ella y su familia. Antes de conocer a EDAPROSPO, las ventas de su tienda eran menores a las de hoy en día.

Ella atiende durante las veinticuatro horas del día un minimarket y licorería. Ella agradece que su casa se tenga buena ubicación pues la calle donde habita es muy concurrida. Sus mismos clientes muchas veces le han dado ideas sobre qué cosas debe vender y que otras no. Atender las demandas de su público es algo que esta creciendo crecer su negocio.

Su esposo es obrero textil en una fábrica. Junto con él ha logrado terminar de construir su casa y brindarle una buena educación a sus hijos. Ella quisiera seguir implementando más su negocio y poder satisfacer los requerimientos de sus clientes más frecuentes.
