Marcela headed off Saturday morning, and won\’t return until tomorrow, she and her Mother have been getting the shop ready for opening on Tuesday, (Monday is a National Holiday!)
Earlier on she sent me these two photos, it looks as if she is nearly ready for business
Apparently she made her first sale today, a child called on them whilst they were working, that is certainly encouraging! The shop is near to a school, so we are hoping that will help, because here in Colombia, the schools provide nothing, everything has to be bought by the Parents, not ideal, but hopefully that will help Marcela. She also intends to liaise with the school regarding stocking text books, so all we can do now is keep our fingers crossed.
I am sure that I will be called upon to do odd jobs, but that is it all wrapped up for now.
