Sabina has been married for 13 years to Mr. Segundo López and they have five young children.

Sabina started working when she was very young and at more or less 10 years of age sold fruit (bananas, apples, oranges and others) since she came from a humble family composed of various siblings.

Besides this she had the opportunity to buy her own stand inside the municipal market of Itá and she took advantage of this. Today she uses it to sell products that she purchases from butchers in the area. She says that things are going well for her and that she has established a very good clientele.

She is very proud of herself because up until now she continues to manage her stand and thanks to that her children are able to study while she never had the opportunity to due to her bad economic situation.

At this time she is requesting a loan to buy products since there is so much demand for her merchandise.
