Maria Teresa's story

María, 53 years old, is single and has no children. She studied to be a secretary in high school, and earned her diploma in that area of study. She decided not to devote herself to a life of marriage, and for that reason she lives with her mother, whom she now cares for.

María works in a snack stand, helping her friend. She has worked with her for many years and gets paid for her services, but she also has a store in her home where she sells basic staples. Her mother tends this business while she is out at the other job, walking 500 meters to work from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the snack stand.

María needs to purchase merchandise for her store, like rice, sugar, bread, detergent, etc. This way her store will be well-stocked and able to offer more variety to her customers. Her dream is for her business to continue prospering and for her to be able to give her mother a better quality of life.
