Bertha Sofia's story

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.
