Maria Rosario
Rosario is married to Francisco. She works in San Martin Jilotepeque, selling corn by the quintal [100-pound sack] and by the pound at the municipal market, and creating traditional blouses. She embroiders only on Mondays and Wednesdays, and on Thursdays and Sundays she sells at the market. At present, she has no one to help her, but she is thinking of employing a female worker. She is requesting the loan to buy corn and fabric on a wholesale basis. She is grateful to FAPE for the support provided to her. She dreams of having another corn business, so that she can gain resources for herself and help her husband to support their children, who are already of school age.
