Maruja
View original language description ↓
Maruja is a happy woman despite her husband having abandoned her with her her little boy in her arms; she knew she had to move forward. Thanks to the help of family members it wasn’t so hard to overcome this difficult stage of her life and she began a business selling groceries in her town. Her happiness was contagious and her neighbors became her most loyal customers, with whom she can always count on and to whom she serves without abandon. Despite counting on a number of good people, she would like to increase her business and knows that you could be one of those good people. She is sure she will receive support to put her project in motion and to forge a promising future for her little one and not ever be in need of the man who abandoned her.

Translated from Spanish by Beatriz Yuste, Kiva Volunteer




Doña Maruja, es una alegre dama que a pesar del abandono de su esposo y quedándose con su hijo pequeño en brazos tuvo que salir adelante; gracias al apoyo de sus familiares no le fue tan difícil superar esta dura etapa de su vida y empezó un gran negocio de venta de abarrotes en su comunidad y su alegría contagió a sus vecinos los cuales se volvieron en sus más abnegados clientes con los cuales puede contar siempre y trata de servir incansablemente.A pesar de contar con un sin número de buenas personas desea incrementar su negocio y sabe que una de esas grandes personas puede ser usted y está segura de recibir vuestro apoyo para poner en marcha su proyecto a fin de forjar un futuro prometedor para su pequeño y no necesitar nunca del hombre desconsiderado que la abandonó.
