Mirna, 21, is married and has a son; she lives with her family in a neighborhood in San Pedro Sula, Cortes. With help from her husband, Mirna opened a food stand where she sells ‘baleadas’ [flour tortillas filled with various ingredients], tortillas with cheese, mixed ‘pupusas’ [filled, grilled corn cakes] and little cakes.
