Hazell María F. M. is 35 years old. She is a single mother with 2 children. Hazell sells fruits and vegetables. It has been more than 5 years since her started her business. Before, only her husband worked; he was a teacher, working in two shifts in primary and secondary school, and this was the only way he would help to take care of the children. Because of this, Hazell decided to help her husband and began selling fruits and vegetables from her home. With a lot of effort, she has succeeded in going forward and has fixed clients. This loan will be used as capital for her business so that she can buy papaya, watermelon, mangoes, oranges, and avocadoes. Her biggest dream is for her children to complete their education.
