Marbelly Del Socorro
View original language description ↓
Young Marbelly lives in the Hector Ugarte neighborhood in zone # 7 together with her family, which is composed of four people: two children, one who is three years old and the other, who is nine months, and her husband, Douglas Diaz Zamora. Together, they work on the property they own, and she has dedicated herself to the business of making tortillas and selling cottage cheese. In addition to selling common fast food, which permits her to earn her own income and not depend on her spouse's income, which is very low, and which helps with the family's household goods expenses, the profits from her business have aowed her to improve her home. At this moment, she is interested in changing the roof and buying materials to better set up the place where she works and give better attention to the customers who visit her.
