Eulalia Sindolfa's story

Eulalia has worked as a traveling car accessory saleswoman for more than 20 years. During the week, she rides down the main street of her neighborhood on her tricycle, and on the weekends she travels around the province to sell in markets. Also, three years ago she started a weave-to-order business in order to earn a better income to provide for her family and cover her household expenses. At 41 years of age, Eulalia is still encouraging the education of her three children of 20, 22 and 24 years of age. She estimates that this will constitute the bulk of her investments for the next five years. Once her children all have their degrees, she would like to invest in a store with a fixed location from which to sell her car accessories.
