Marina Isabel
Doña María, 57 years old and a native of León, is an unassuming housewife and merchant who has a small store in her home. She is married and the mother of three children. They are all adults, however she cares for her parents.

She gained experience in the world of commerce when she was very young and sold general merchandise as a street vender. Later she set up a mini-store selling general merchandise and three years ago started her small grocery business. Thanks to these businesses, and with great effort and sacrifice, she saw to it that her children became professionals and were able to progress in life. At the same time she was looking after her parents, who are now quite elderly and whom she herself cares for.

María has taken out a loan to buy clothing, footwear and cosmetics in order to stock her mini-store. One of her plans is to paint and improve the infrastructure so that she can expand, since her store is a great convenience for people in her community
