Miguela's story

Miguela has been a widow for a year and a half. She has 2 daughters that are university students and they help her with her business.

Miguela has always worked in the market selling items and her husband was a public servant. Ms. Miguela worked hard to start her own business which she operates in a commercial space that is attached to her home. Her home is located next to the municipal marketplace in the city of Luque. Now they have many customers who are generally employees of the surrounding businesses.

She would like her daughters to graduate from the university and start their own businesses. She also rents commercial spaces that are located in the front part of her home. These commercial spaces are very desirable since they are located in the preferred zone of the municipal marketplace.
