Maria Magdalena
Maria Magdalena G. is in food service. She has a restaurant called “Comedor Emmanuel”. She has been in this business for over 30 years. It has gone well for her during all of this time. Through the business she was able to educate her children and get them ahead.

Maria has been selling food since a plate of food only cost less than 0.75 Lempira. Now a plate of food is worth 40 or 50 Lempiras. She was the first to start a restaurant in this place.

Taking advantage of her earnings, she has improved the house where she lives and has her business. Her daughter helps her make the food.

One of her goals is to set up a small boarding service because her area lacks this type of service. People need this type of service. They have to go back to El Paraiso, which is 17 kilometers from this area.
