Maria Monserrate's story

Maria Monserrate is 26-years-old. She is in a common law marriage and her partner works in recycling. They live in Jipijapa, a city that has been very impacted by Covid-19. Maria is a woman that looks for ways to earn income and support her husband with the household expenses. It's even more important now that everything is more complicated because of the pandemic, which has caused a lot of losses in their lives and work.

Maria works raising pigs. She raises these animals from when they are tiny until they are of an adequate weight and later sells them to merchants or, with her husband's help, slaughters the pig and sells the meat.
